CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- The Clarkstown Police Department is celebrating Throwback Thursday with a look back 15 years to when officers from the department visited the National Police Memorial as part of National Police Week.

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

Today, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world travel to Washington, D.C., to participate in a number of planned events that honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The official memorial service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park and, decades later, has grown to a series of events that attract thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to the capital each year.
