Remembering Those Who Sacrificed Their Lives

Each year, during National Police Week, our nation celebrates the contributions of law enforcement from around the country, recognizing their hard work, dedication, loyalty and commitment to keeping our communities safe.

Peace Officers Memorial Day

In 1962, President Kennedy issued the first proclamation for Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week to remember and honor law enforcement officers for their service and sacrifices. Peace Officers Memorial Day, which every year falls on May 15, specifically honors law enforcement officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.

Again this year, communities across the United States will honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind.

This year, the names of 282 officers killed in the line of duty are being added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. These 282 officers include 118 officers who were killed during 2023, plus 164 officers who died in previous years, but whose stories of sacrifice had been lost to history until now.

We Recognize The Dedicated Officers

There are more than 800,000 law enforcement officers serving in communities across the United States, including the dedicated members of the agencies NovoaGlobal serves across the nation.  Since the first recorded death in 1786, there are currently 24,067 law enforcement officers in the United States who have made the ultimate sacrifice and been killed in the line of duty. 

NovoaGlobal Saves Lives

Every day NovoaGlobal’s advanced technology saves lives, not only those of drivers, passengers and pedestrians, but also law enforcement patrol officers who no longer put their own lives in danger to enforce speeding, red light running, stop signs, and railroad crossings. By incorporating technology at high risk locations, photo enforcement cameras become a force multiplier for law enforcement, allowing agencies to enforce effectively and efficiently without putting officers in danger at traffic stops.
