Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. May 12-18, 2019 has been designated as National Police Officers Week.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan created National Correctional Officers Week to honor the work of correctional officers nationwide. In doing so, President Reagan recognized that correctional personnel work under demanding circumstances and that their duties have become increasingly complex and demanding. Thirty-five years later, this statement still rings true. May 5-11, 2019 has been designated as National Correctional Officers Week.
