Moody and local law enforcement are hosting various activities to honor National Police Week, May 15-19, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga.
The week honors the legacies of fallen officers, both civilian and military. It also gives various sections within the law enforcement community an opportunity to train together in friendly competitions.
“Sometimes our mission sets are unique and specific based off jurisdiction and laws, but at the end of the day, there are a lot of similarities that bring us together,” Senior Master Sgt. Derwood Burk, 822d Base Defense Squadron operations superintendent said. “[Police Week] honors those who sacrifice day-in and day-out, they wake up, put on the uniform, get in that patrol car and help people with everything from traffic violations to stopping murderers and criminals.”
