Ride-Along for Police Week

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - National Police Week is a week to honor men and women in blue locally and across the country who put their lives on the line for the public's safety every day.

The day originated in 1962 when President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officer Memorial Day.

"I enjoy getting up, putting this uniform on, and jobbing it all day," Cheyenne Police Officer Monnett says of his job. "We wake up every morning knowing that that's a reality of this job that we may not come home. And this week is to remember and honor those that didn't make it home. The ultimate goal is to keep every body safe."
