Peace Officer Memorial Service

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Join the Newton Police Department and law enforcement agencies from Jasper County in remembering our local fallen officers on Thursday, May 16 on the Jasper County Courthouse Lawn. (Memorial will be indoors in the event of inclement weather.) Peace Officers Memorial Day is a part of Police Week, paying tribute to local, State and Federal law enforcement officers. Peace Officers Memorial Day was created on October 1, 1961. At that time, Congress asked President John F. Kennedy to designate May 15 as a day to honor peace officers. On October 1, 1962, President Kennedy signed the bill into law.
