Special to the PRESS
South Padre Island is doing its part to honor fallen officers on Peace Officers Memorial Day.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.
During National Police Week, take time to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind.
