Police Week May 9-15, 2021
During National Police Week, and everyday, DeLand Police Department honors the officers that have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
We are grateful for our Law Enforcement Officers that dedicate their careers serving and protecting the residents of the DeLand community. Please join us by showing your support and appreciation to DeLand Police Department's Law Enforcement.
What is National Police Week? "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. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others."
