The services provided by the men and women of law enforcement across the world are held in high regard here at Reveal, and this week is an opportunity to share our support. This may 10th – 16th is National Police Week, celebrating the lives of those lost in the line of duty and their surviving comrades who continue to protect and to serve.

By creating superior technology we enable the future of policing to be enhanced by technology, and capture the good with the bad to ensure LEO's continue to evolve in this fast paced world.  

Firstly however, where did police week come from? Well, in 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement.

Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to Washington D.C. each year.

Secondly, over the course of police week many events take place focused on unification - between one another, and the public. Candle-lit vigils and musical performances act as rememberance for those killed, and injured, in the line of duty and for survivors to celebrate their brave service.

As body cameras have taken over as the new wave of intelligent policing which continues to sweep the nation, those already reaping the benefits of the technology will be sure to speak positively of it to their colleagues whose departments are still unsure of the leap forward.
