National Police Week, May 12-18, is a week in which people around the world converge on Washington D.C. to honor the peace officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving their life in the line of duty.

This year, 228 names will be added to the memorial in Washington D.C. to honor the officers who died in the line of duty, including three officers from Michigan.

The MSP honors its fallen troopers each year with a ceremony at the MSP Fallen Trooper Memorial at the MSP Training Academy in Lansing. The MSP Fallen Trooper Memorial was established in 2001 with the support of private donations. The granite semi-circle wall is engraved with the names of 53 fallen troopers.

The Michigan State Police Negaunee Post, Alger County Sheriff’s Department, and Munising City Police Department are hosting the 2019 Upper Peninsula Peace Officers Memorial at Munising High School on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at 10 a.m.

The purpose of this event is to honor the memory of fallen officers, having made the ultimate sacrifice in their services to the public. The ceremony includes recognition of fallen officers in the Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin bordering agencies, Ontario bordering agencies, and Upper Peninsula natives.

Attendees will experience a law enforcement processional, the roll call of fallen officers, the laying of the wreath, a performance of taps, a rifle salute, and a keynote speech by retired Ionia County Sheriff Terrence Jungel.

The Michigan State Police and Alger County Law Enforcement Community invite all media outlets and area citizens to attend and join us in honoring fallen officers and support the families left behind.
