The Helena Police Department would like to invite the public to attend the 2019 Montana Peace Officers' Memorial Day events in Helena May 15th.
Peace Officers' Memorial Day was established by Congress and President Kennedy in 1961 as a day to pay tribute to the local, state, and federal peace officers who have died, or who have been disabled, in the line of duty. May 15th each year was established as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and the week in which the 15th falls as Police Week. Memorials are marked nationally each year in Washington, D.C. and throughout the nation in individual states.
The Montana memorial ceremony is a "traveling" one, hosted each year in a different community around Montana. For 2019, the ceremony returns to Helena for the 3rd time since the event began in the early 2000's. The ceremony was hosted in Bozeman in 2018, and in Havre in 2017.
The Helena Police Department want to invite everyone to downtown Helena for a memorial procession of police and other emergency vehicles at 11:00am on Wednesday 5/15.
The procession will begin at Helena and Last Chance Gulch, and travel south through the Walking Mall to Broadway Street, then east to the Capitol Building.
The Memorial Ceremony will begin on the north lawn of the Capitol Building at 12:00 noon, with guest speakers, special musical presentations and ceremonies.
