Police Week features athletic competitions

To show appreciation for the everyday sacrifices law enforcement members make protecting the community, Scott participated in National Police Week from May 15-19. Police Week kicked off with a shooting competition, followed throughout the week by a basketball tournament, a softball tournament and ended with a 5K.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week.
