The White House was bathed in blue lights on Wednesday night in recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week marked yearly on 15th May.

President Donald Trump for a second time led the nation to honor police officers killed in the line of duty.


The annual Peace Officers Memorial Day tradition was a resolution made under then-President John F. Kennedy in 1962.

So far in 2019, more than 40 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty in the U.S.

The weeklong series of events include memorial services and a candlelight vigil, a 5K race, a conference for the families of fallen officers, and an honour guard competition, among other events.
