Annual Candlelight Vigil

Event Dates
National Mall between 7th and 12th streets

Washington, DC

Each year on May 13th, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund produces its annual Candlelight Vigil — a signature event of National Police Week in Washington, DC.

During the Candlelight Vigil, fallen officers whose names were engraved on the Memorial's walls that spring are formally dedicated.

Held on the National Mall, in addition to the lighting of candles and reading of names, the Candlelight Vigil includes remarks by dignitaries, and musical tributes performed to honor the memory of these fallen officers.
