5/10/2012 - MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- The 366th Security Forces Squadron is teaming up with local law enforcement to celebrate Police Week May 14-18.

National Police Week was first observed in 1962 when President John F. Kennedy officially declared May 15th National Peace Officers' Memorial Day.

"This day, and the week surrounding it allows us an opportunity to honor the law enforcement officers across the nation and around the world that have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty during the previous calendar year," said Master Sgt. Cassie Letendre, 366th Security Forces Squadron logistics superintendent. "This week is also a time to offer support to the families of those fallen officers."

The 366th SFS will observe Police Week with a 5k run May 14, Retreat Ceremony May 15, an open house May 16, a Sportsman Shoot May 17 and a golf tournament May 18.


MEDIA NOTE: Media interested in covering Police Week should contact the base Public Affairs office at 208-828-6800 no later than noon the day prior to the date of the event you wish to attend.
