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. Currently, tens of thousands
of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
During police week, Chief Trigo acknowledges officers who have exemplified their professionalism and dedication to the community during the past year. Their actions bring acclaim to
themselves and the Fanwood Police Department. This annual tradition at the Fanwood Police Department takes place during the Mayor and Council Regular Meeting.
