Memorial Service for Fallen Bucks County Officers is May 19

The ceremony, to be held at St. Andrew Catholic Church on Monday, May 19, will be a chance to honor officers who have paid the ultimate price while serving the community.

The annual Bucks County Police Memorial Ceremony will be held Monday, May 19 at St. Andrew Catholic Church. The ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.

The ceremony will be a chance to honor officers who have paid the ultimate price while serving the community. 

The event corresponds with National Police Week, which is May 11 to 17.

President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 in 1962, declaring May 15 Peace Officers Memorial Day. Later, President Bill Clinton signed a resolution that all flags at government buildings will be flown half-staff on that day.

The memorial is open to the public. Officers begin to line up in advance of the 7 p.m. step off.

During past services, a memorial hat in memory of each Bucks County officer who died in the line of duty was placed on a table at the front of the church.
