During National Police Week, DHS employees had the opportunity to honor all law enforcement officers who serve our country, our communities, and our citizens.
This year, Secretary Johnson and Deputy Secretary Mayorkas took part in several of the commemorative events, including the Custom and Border Protection’s Valor Memorial and Wreath Laying, the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial Fund’s Candlelight Vigil, the Federal Protective Service’s Valor Memorial and Wreath Laying Ceremony, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Valor Memorial and Wreath Laying, and the United States Secret Service Wall of Honor Ceremony. Members of our Department also joined the National Peace Officers for their Memorial Service this past weekend.

At each of these incredibly moving events, they honored the men and women who are called to serve in law enforcement, and paid tribute to those (including their families) who made the ultimate sacrifice.
We encourage you to take a moment and do so as well.
