National Police Week Begins

Those groups of motorcycle cops you see going up and down I-395? The random street closures in South Arlington? Police cruisers from jurisdictions far, far away from here? All are signs that National Police Week has begun in the nation’s capital.

Several Police Week-related events were held in Pentagon City today.

The Drug Enforcement Administration held its annual memorial service at its headquarters this morning. Three agents who were killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan last fall were honored at the event, which included a speech by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Later, bicyclists from the inaugural Law Enforcement United Memorial Ride stopped outside DEA headquarters for a short service that included a performance by a group of police bagpipers and drummers.

The riders — more than 200 in number — were then escorted by dozens of police motorcycles over to the Pentagon Memorial for another service.

National Police Week will conclude on Monday.
