Police exhibit on display at the Sequim Civic Center

SEQUIM — An exhibit of the Sequim Police Department’s support of the Sequim Irrigation Festival and Sequim Lavender Weekend, along with historical artifacts, is on display at the Sequim Civic Center in recognition of National Police Week.

The exhibit will be in the Karen Kuznek-Reese Gallery, 152 W. Cedar Street, through the month of May. The gallery is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

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

There have been 92 line-of-duty deaths in the United States as of April 21 this year.

The Clallam County Sheriff’s office will host a Bell Ringing Ceremony in Liberty Park (next to the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles) on Friday, May 13, at 1:30 p.m. in honor of those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
