Law and Enforcement-Serving and Protecting (15 May 2020)
Law enforcement officers throughout America this week are being honored for their service and sacrifices during National Police Week. The origins of the week came from a proclamation by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 making May 15 National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week of May 15 National Police Week. It was established through a joint resolution of Congress that year to pay special recognition to officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. Shown are members of the Neillsville Police Department, including (l-r) officer Ben Zawislan, Sgt. Patrick Fehlman, Chief Jim Mankowski and officers Brett Chwala and Jason King.
