05/13/2013


Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha is in Washington, D.C. for Police Week. He met with Officer Ted Cam, a mainland officer, to thank him for his participation in riding for our fallen Hawaii officers. Police Week is observed around the nation as a time to honor and remember law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating the week in which May 15th falls on as National Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, D.C. to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
