St. Mary's Co. Sheriff's Office Commemorates Peace Officers Memorial Day

With over 120 years of experience, their team of lawyers and experienced legal support professionals work to help you in a time of legal need.
As COVID-19 cancelled local and regional memorial services for National Police Week, the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office held its own ceremony on Friday to remember those law enforcement members who have made the ultimate sacrifice across the country. So far in 2020, 77 members of the law enforcement community in the United States have been lost.

The men and women of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office acknowledge those who have made the ultimate sacrifice by wearing a mourning band across their badges. "We also acknowledge those peace officers working in our communities every hour, every day to make America safer," Sheriff Tim Cameron said.

"Remember on May 15 those who go before you," Pastor Charlie Wharton said on Friday.

In 1962 President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as National Police Week.
