National Police Week Events
May 15-21 is National Police Week, which honors police officers and pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Houston VA has a dedicated, professional Police Department, filled with officers who are deeply committed to our Veterans and our VA. The majority of our officers are Veterans themselves and feel a special connection to our Veteran patients.
If you are on our main medical center campus on Monday, May 16th, you will see lots of activities and events aimed at honoring officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice and those who continue to serve as members of law enforcement. Please join us as we thank and honor our Houston VA Police Officers during this week.
