It’s National Police Week and Mayor Kenny Weldon, Police Chief Jason King and several officers gathered at the Stephenville Police Department Monday for a proclamation signing. Mayor Weldon (third from right) thanked local police officers for their service to the city. 

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that day falls as National Police Week. For video of this ceremony, visit the E-T’s Facebook page.
