[ARCHIVED] IFPD Celebrates National Police Week


Join the Idaho Falls Police Department in celebrating National Police Week, May 14-20.

“National Police Week is an important time in the law enforcement community,” Idaho Falls Police Chief Mark McBride said. “Not only do we recognize the good work done by law enforcement, but we also honor those officers who have been killed in the line-of-duty.”

Former President John F. Kennedy designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week in 1962.

The public is cordially invited to attend the annual Bonneville County and Idaho Falls Peace Officer Memorial Service on Monday, May 15, at 6 p.m. at the Bonneville County Courthouse, 605 N. Capital in Idaho Falls. This event is a special service to recognize and remember.

There will be a special tribute to Officer Leen VanHulten, who passed away in February 2017. He served the City of Idaho Falls for 24 years as a patrol officer and school resource officer for Idaho Falls School District 91.

This event is free to the public.

Media Note: For additional information regarding this release, contact Kerry Hammon, Public Information Officer, City of Idaho Falls.
