National Police Week pays tribute to those officers who have died in the line of duty. Law enforcement officers from across America are in Washington D.C. this week to honor their fellow officers who have died in the line of duty.
On Tuesday, about 1,800 members of the Police Unity Tour arrived. The cyclists are from across the nation and are taking part in the ride to the National Law Enforcement Memorial. The ride has raised almost $16 million for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund since its inception in 1997.
On Wednesday night, a candlelight vigil will take place at the National Memorial to honor those killed in the line of duty. During the vigil, a total of 237 names of fallen officers will be added to the national memorial.
For Friday, 05/15 in D.C. For National Police Week...At 11AM is the 34th ANNUAL NATIONAL PEACE OFFICERS' MEMORIAL SERVICE. The service will be held on the West Front of the United States Capitol.
The Wreath Laying Ceremony will be held immediately following the Memorial Service at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
For Saturday, 05/16, National Police Week, Final Day Activity in D.C., The National Police Survivors Conference and C.O.P.S. Kids/Teens provides surviving family and co-workers opportunities to learn about coping and grief. The day wraps up with a picnic on the patio at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center Hotel.
Our hearts go out to those for whom "the pain never goes away."

Most badges offer a choice of two types of enamel. Hard fired enamel is a jewelers enamel that is overflowed into an area on a badge and is then baked at a very high temperature. It is smooth to the touch, very durable and is usually standard on badges with deluxe (high end) finishes.
Regular enamel is paint that is flowed into engraved letters on a badge and then wiped off. Letters are not flush with the surface of the badge, but have a slight indentation. Regular enamel is usually the choice for standard level finishes, but hard enamel may be chosen for a small additional cost.
If you choose hard fired enamel for your badge, it will add 5 to 10 days to the manufacturing time needed to make a custom badge. Badges with hard fired enamel require up to 17 additional manufacturing steps which is why it takes a slightly longer time to make the badge.
Watching the Steps involved in making a custom badge is extremely interesting. Both Blackinton and Smith & Warren have videos of their badge making process. It's well worth spending the time to watch!
