Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, 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.

This year was especially meaningful in light of the deaths of the two Hattiesburg Police Officers Saturday.

The flags were soon lowered to half-staff in their honor.
