To Assure Opportunity for In-person Attendance, National Police Week Events Are Postponed to October 2021. Planned events include honoring fallen officers from 2019 and 2020.
Washington, (March 10, 2021) - Host organizations of National Police Week, which include the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum, the Fraternal Order of Police and Auxiliary (FOP), and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S), have made the difficult but necessary decision, due to the ongoing pandemic, to postpone in-person events of National Police Week to October 13-17, 2021, in Washington, D.C. The rescheduling of the originally planned events to be held May 11-16, 2021, is due to the inability to secure necessary permits in time for in-person gatherings due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
The National Police Weekend will offer the same honor, remembrance, and peer support as the extended National Police Week, while allowing law enforcement, survivors, and citizens to gather and pay homage to those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
The planned schedule of events includes:
• Thursday, October 14 - NLEOMF Candlelight Vigil
• Friday, October 15 - C.O.P.S. National Police Survivors' Conference
• Saturday, October 16 - FOP 40th Annual National Peace Officers Memorial Service
The three host organizations remain committed to their missions and to honoring the fallen law enforcement heroes from 2019 and 2020, while making sure their survivors are supported. In addition to the in-person events in October, each organization will host virtual events on originally scheduled dates in May 2021. More information on these events are forthcoming.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year.
The National Peace Officers Memorial Service, which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, is one in a series of events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which is sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and seminars sponsored by Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)
National Police Week draws in between 25,000 to 40,000 attendees. The attendees come from departments throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world. This provides a unique opportunity to meet others who work in law enforcement. In that spirit, the Fraternal Order of Police DC Lodge #1 sponsors receptions each afternoon and evening during Police Week. These events are open to all law enforcement personnel and are an experience unlike any other.

This week alone there have been some fun cars to work on getting Ceramic coating. That is the best way to protect your investment because ceramic coating is just that, a cured hard seal that repels water and dirt year-round. If you are looking at your auto and it is covered in the salt from the Chicago winter, do yourself and your car a favor and seal that out. Salt erodes and damages paint, like bird lime, UV rays, tree gum, acid etching, and other corrosive processes when your car sits in the elements.
If you want your car to shine like glass we use Gtechniq's crystal serum light, which is a 5-7 year ceramic coating. It is one of the thickest ceramic coatings on the market, it enhances gloss, increases durability, adds scratch resistance, creates a hydrophobic barrier. In essence it provides a thin protection guarding your car from more than scratches. Ceramic coating is done professionally and it is not a good idea for a DIY project. Ceramic coating lasts three to five years and can even last a lifetime. Ceramic coating forms a bond and clear coat over the paint and is thicker than wax or other sealants.
Say good-bye to polishing and wax jobs
Protect your investment, maintain the value of your car
Kiss those etch marks from bird droppings and bug splats good-bye
Enjoy the shine, a superb gloss and noticeable slick coating
Chemical stains will be no more
Now, enjoy a car that is easy to care for.
We also do paint correction, window tinting, interior and exterior cleaning and take the beauty of your car personally so make us your detailer of choice.

Unique Balloon Decorating is a family run business for over 27 years. Founded by Jill and Frank Fishella, established in Willowbrook.
For a while the whole family was involved; Jill’s parents, Bill and Dotty Buckley and their middle daughter, Sabrina went down to Georgia to their first Balloonaversity. Samantha and Salena joined in later to help out. It was definitely a team effort at times!
Unique Balloons is definitely ‘Unique” Jill and Frank have a definite creative side. Frank, on the front lines created and designed the yard numbers for birthdays. Those have become the most popular item, especially in the last year during the pandemic. Jill has always been the quiet creative brains working behind the scenes.
Speaking of the pandemic and yard numbers, Salena (their youngest daughter) has now taken over the business allowing Jill and Frank to finally retire!
