National Police Week

The MEA would like to take a moment to thank the hardworking members of the NYPD in honor of National Police Week. Founded in 1962 following President Kennedy’s signing of a proclamation declaring May 15th Peace Officers Memorial Day, National Police Week serves to honor those who made the sacrifice to serve their fellow citizens.

Here in New York, the NYPD works hard to keep New Yorkers safe across the five boroughs, addressing issues ranging from traffic incidents to emergency response to counterterrorism. As the largest municipal police force in the country, they serve as an example to cities across the nation in their work protecting the denizens of the Greatest City in the World. 

We are proud to represent these deserving individuals in our NYPD Chapter. If you are interested in running for one of the leadership positions – Chapter Director, Assistant Chapter Director, and Recording Secretary—be sure to let our office know! This is a great opportunity to get involved in the fight to protect your rights! Spread the word about membership to any of your colleagues who are not members, for we are stronger in numbers.
