The date for the release of the Police Memorial video has changed. The new date for the virtually ceremony will be released on Friday, May 15, 2020 at noon, which is National Police Memorial Day as proclaimed by President Kennedy.
Every year, families, friends and colleagues come together with members of the community to pay tribute to the Dallas Police Department’s fallen officers during National Police Memorial Week. The event recognizes the sacrifices made by Dallas police officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. This year, our Police Memorial Ceremony was scheduled for May 13, 2020. However, a decision was made to cancel the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although there will be no public ceremony, the Dallas Police Department will not let our fallen heroes go unrecognized during this memorial week. Starting on Monday, May 11 at 7:00 a.m., a Roll Call of Honor will begin. Every hour on the hour, a montage of the department’s fallen officers will be posted on the Dallas Police Department’s Facebook page and tweeted out on the department’s Twitter account. This will continue until all the fallen officers have been properly recognized, which should conclude on Friday.
On May 15, 2020, at 12:00 p.m., a video honoring those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice will be released on the department’s Facebook page and Youtube Channel. Below are the links to those social media pages where the video and photos can be viewed.
