NATIONAL POLICE WEEK

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Every Year, the North Miami Police Department remembers its fallen officers, Sergeant Carl W. Mertes, Detective Sergeant Steven E. Bauer and Sergeant Lynette Hodge during our annual Memorial Ceremony, which took place on May 3rd this year.

This week, President Barack Obama awarded the Medal of Valor to 13 public safety officers during a ceremony at the White House. North Miami Police Officer Niel Johnson, a veteran of the force for over 20 years, was amongst the honorees. The Medal of Valor is awarded to public safety officers who have exhibited exceptional courage, regardless of personal safety, in the attempt to save or protect others from harm.

Officer Johnson received it for swift and valorous action to end a violent crime spree. Officer Johnson engaged a subject who had shot at a Miami police officer and shot two other innocent people. Withstanding fire from an assault weapon, he returned fire and apprehended the assailant.

Last year, 128 police officers in the United States gave their lives in the line of duty. This year we have lost 35 brave souls. Take the opportunity this week to thank all the brave and courageous men and women in blue who serve and protect.
