Each May, during National Police Week, the U.S. recognizes the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement and pays tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. A candlelight vigil is held at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC in honor of the law enforcement officers who have died that year. The names engraved on the Memorial include fallen officers from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and federal law enforcement and military police agencies. This event, as well as a memorial service on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol Building are open to the public.
