  1. For people outside the law enforcement family, this really doesn’t mean much to them. To Us, it means a lot. National Law Enforcement Memorial Day is May 15th. Please take a minute to recognize the LEO that have lost their life in the line of duty. Please fly your American Flag at half staff. RIP 29T6
