A law enforcement convoy rolled through town on Tuesday, May 10 on the way to Washington, D.C.

National Police Week (NPW), held May 11 – 17 each year in Washington, D.C., honors the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement officers. On May 11 and 12, surviving families and co-workers begin arriving in Washington, D.C. for the events.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week. The law was amended by the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Public Law 103-322, signed by President Bill Clinton, directing that the flag of the United States be displayed at half-staff on all government buildings on May 15 each year.

Graffiti near Rotary Park - on the back of someone's garage.

The wheels on the north cannon at the bridge plaza are going to be restored, but the panel in the carriage tail might need some attention, too.

Here's a longer view.
