JUNE 2017
Candlelight Vigil

Candlelight Vigil 2017_Newsletter_June

Each year on May 13, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund produces its annual Candlelight Vigil—a signature event of National Police Week in Washington, DC. During the Candlelight Vigil, fallen officers whose names were engraved on the Memorial’s walls that spring are formally dedicated. In 2017, the Candlelight Vigil was held on the National Mall between 4th & 7th streets. In addition to the lighting of candles and reading of names, the Candlelight Vigil included remarks by dignitaries, and musical tributes performed to honor the memory of these fallen officers.
