National Law Enforcement Memorial Day

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, National Police Week. National Police week pays special recognition to law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. This year National Police week runs from May 12th through May 18th. Please join us in honoring those officers from around the country that have paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving and protecting. The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office has a permanently dedicated page to honor those that have lost their lives in the line of duty while serving with the Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office. Please visit our Ultimate Sacrifice tab in honor of Sheriff James M. Nelson and Deputy Jailer Randy Z. Haddix.
