National Police Week, which occurs each year during the week in which May 15 falls, recognizes the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement. 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 the Christian County community will pay honor to those law enforcement officers who continue to serve and to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty by displaying blue ribbons on doors and windows of businesses throughout the community. If you would like to display a blue ribbon at your business or organization, please stop by the Commerce Center to pick up a ribbon. Open Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm, the ribbons will be available at our front reception desk.

If you have any questions, contact Yasamin Ausenbaugh at yausenbaugh@christiancountychamber.com or (270) 885-9096.

For several years, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) has encouraged citizens to fly blue ribbons from their car antennas and for business owners to fly blue ribbons at their place of business during National Police Week. This year National Police Week is from May 10th through May 16th, and seeing blue ribbons flying from cars, displayed at businesses, and also displayed at homes would be a tremendous show of support for our fallen officers and those still working the streets.

Citizens can pick up their free blue ribbons at the Hopkinsville Police Department and businesses can pick up their free blue ribbons at the Chamber of Commerce, so they can display them during National Police Week. Your business does not have to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce in order to pick up your blue ribbon.
