The 2017 National Police Week at Joint Base San Antonio kicks off May 15 and will run until May 19.

JBSA is taking part in National Police Week, which was established by a joint resolution of Congress in October 1962. It occurs annually during the week in which May 15 falls. National Police Week recognizes the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement members and pays special recognition to law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

“This is an amazing opportunity for all of JBSA to come together and honor the service and sacrifice of law enforcement through friendly competition, be it in a field or on a firing range,” said Tech. Sgt. Jacob See, 802nd Security Forces Squadron unit security manager.

All of the JBSA Security Forces Squadrons will host local law enforcement agencies during this tournament. These events are open to all members of law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics and the communities they serve.

Events for the week are:
May 15 - Obstacle course at the JBSA Medina Training Annex obstacle course
- K-9 Competition at the JBSA-Lackland military working dog kennels

May 16 - Softball tournament at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston softball fields

May 17 - Football tournament at the Randolph High School football stadium

May 18 - Ruck March to Remember at JBSA-Camp Bullis, 343rd Training Squadron

May 19 - Shoot your best hand at Medina Training Annex combat arms range
- Battle of the Cross dedication / Family Day at JBSA-Lackland, 343rd Training Squadron
