In 1962, May 15th was designated as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as National Police Week. During this time, we pay tribute to the local, state, and federal peace officers who have died in the line of duty.
If you would like to pay tribute, you may replace your porch light with blue bulbs through Saturday, May 20th, 2023.
On May 18th, 2023, 10:00 am, at Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home (6801 East Highway 80, Odessa, TX), the Odessa Police Department and the Midland Police Department will hold a memorial service to honor fellow officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. OPD and MPD will also honor the officers who lost their lives in the line of duty the past year in Texas.
