Next week marks the start of National Police Week in D.C. and Arlington can expect plenty of motorcades and busy hotels as a result.
The annual week-long event was last held in October, after being delayed due to the pandemic. It’s now back to its usual timeslot in the spring and may be a particularly large event this year.
“Police Week this year is going to be huge,” a tipster tells ARLnow. “After not having in 20 or 21 and an abbreviated one in Fall of 21 and a large number of Covid deaths, there will be huge participation.”
“Several Arlington hotels are base camps for the families,” the person noted.
Police Week is scheduled from Wednesday, May 11 through Tuesday, May 17. Most of the scheduled activities will take place Thursday through Sunday, though the arrival of families of fallen officers on Wednesday and Thursday will prompt many of the motorcades and rolling road closures.
Arlington County will hold its own observance of Peace Officers Memorial Day this coming Tuesday. The event, held in Courthouse, is open to the public.

The Arlington County Police Department and the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office will gather to honor and pay tribute to the memory of the seven law enforcement officers of Arlington County who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our community. This solemn ceremony is held each year ahead of National Police Week which recognizes those law enforcement officers throughout the United States who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others and provides support to their survivors.

About National Police Week
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. It is a dedicated time to honor and remember the officers who have given their lives in the line of duty, and recognize the sacrifices made by the families of those officers. National Police Week occurs each May and will be observed from May 11 – 17, 2022.
Police Week is organized by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Fraternal Order of Police/Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary (FOP/FOPA) and the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and supported by law enforcement agencies across the country. The public can expect to see an increase in law enforcement activity in Arlington and the region as police agencies from around the country escort survivors to National Police Week events. An increased presence of police vehicles with activated emergency equipment around Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and nearby hotels is anticipated.
