National Police Week, started in 1962 by then President John F. Kennedy, honors fallen, retired, and active law enforcement. 2013 National Police Week is May 12-18. The Lewis County Police Appreciation Committee will again hold a special ceremony Friday, May 17, at 7 p.m. in the Beaver River Central School auditorium. Open to the public, and free to attend, the event will feature guest speaker Police Chief Gerald Pickering of Webster, N.Y., who lost 2 members of the Webster Police Department on Christmas Eve, 2012, when they were ambushed as they responded to a house fire.
