Police K9 exhibit on display at Sequim Civic Center

SEQUIM — A Sequim Police Department exhibit highlighting the 24-year history of the K9 program is on display in the Karen Kuznek-Reese Gallery at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St.

The exhibit is open through the month of May in recognition of National Police Week. The gallery is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Sequim K9 program began in 2000 and is active today with K9 officer Mamba. The program is funded through donations specified for the “Sequim Police Department K9 Program.” All donations go to funding health care, food, training and supplies for the K9 unit.

Those interested in donating to the program can contact the police department at 360-683-7227.

President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation in 1962 that designated May 15 as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as National Police Week.

Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, D.C., during Police Week to participate in a number of planned events that honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The memorial service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of about 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement.

There have been 348 Line of Duty deaths in the United States as of April 23 this year.

The Clallam County Sheriff’s office will host a bell ringing ceremony at Liberty Park next to the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles at 1:30 p.m. May 17 to honor those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
