This year’s National Police Week will be from May 10 – 16, 2015, with the
National Peace Officers Memorial Service taking place on Friday, May 15, 2015,
at the United States Capitol in Washington, DC. The Professional Standards
Section in collaboration with the Henrico Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4 and
the Henrico Police Foundation are planning two activities in Henrico County
during this week to honor our fallen officers.
On Monday, May
11, 2015, 0830, we will conduct a wreath laying ceremony at Memorial Park
marking the start of our recognition of Police Memorial Week. Then, on Monday
evening, May 11, 2015 we will be conducting a memorial service at the West End
Assembly of God starting at 1800 hours. There will be time for fellowship and
reflection both before and after the service.
week is an important week for all law enforcement agencies across the Nation as
we honor and remember law enforcement officers that have made the ultimate
sacrifice by giving their life in the line of duty. We will honor nine Henrico
Officers and one VA State Trooper.
In order to make
attending the memorial service easier for officers and their families we are
planning on having child care from 1730 – 2000 hours for children up to the
age of 11. Coordinating an event like this and providing child care takes
considerable planning. For this reason we are trying to get an estimate on the
number of people that would like to utilize the child care service. If you plan
on using the free child care so that you may attend the Memorial Service please
respond to this email with the number of children you will be bringing and their
ages. Responses are needed prior to April 30, 2015.
I truly hope that
all Police Division employees will join us for this worthy and important evening
as we honor and respect our brothers and sisters in law enforcement for their
More detailed information about our events will be coming out soon.

LDP (Legal Defense
Plan) - Having the LDP not only protects you but your family- don't
put your personal financial situation in danger by not having this
coverage. NOTE: Nationwide the per hour rate for an attorney is
$325.00 whereas the annual cost for the FOP-LDP is $215.00
(testimonials available if you do not believe this coverage is an
important addition to your Insurance portfolio). Having legal
counsel during any investigation (administrative, criminal, or
civil) will insure the protection of your
due process rights. Waiting to obtain the LDP until after being
notified that you are under investigation is like trying to obtain
auto insurance after you have wrecked your car. Don't delay get it
