Begun in 1962 by presidential proclamation, National Peace
Officers Memorial Day (May 15 every year) and National Police Week (the week in
which May 15 falls) honor those men and women in uniform who have paid the
ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives in the line of duty.

The highlight of Police Week in Yonkers is the Annual Police Awards and Memorial Ceremony at the Police and Fire
Memorial site at Untermeyer Park
on North Broadway on Wednesday, May 13 at 6:00

On Friday, May 15 the Yonkers Police Museum
will be open for tours from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The museum is located at
Police Headquarters, 104 South Broadway.

On Saturday, May 16 the Yonkers Police Department will be
holding a free Child Seat Check and VIN Etching Event from 9:00 a.m.through 3:00 p.m. at the First Precinct, 730 East Grassy Sprain Road.
Call to pre-register at 377-7375.

Specially trained and certified police officers will inspect
car seats for participants in the Child Safety Seat program to determine
whether the car seats meet federal and state safety guidelines and are
correctly installed. Officers will make corrections as needed and show parents
how to install their car seats correctly. A limited amount of car seats are
available at no expense to participants who meet specific economic guidelines.

VIN etching deters auto theft by permanently etching a
vehicle’s VIN (vehicle identification number) into the vehicle’s glass; if the
vehicle is stolen, its glass cannot be used on another vehicle. Participants in
the VIN Etching program may be eligible for a discount on their car

  1. What’s the story with Gerry Esposito? How is she allowed to run for political office when she is an employee of the NYS Unified Court System and is restricted from running in partisan elections under the Hatch Act?
    Is the press asleep?

  2. Y.O. Cops! Gotta love ’em.
    and you did kick the crap outta the firefighters this year! sorry bravest.
    Did Amicone make this Police week cause the cops hate him and he wants someone to like him at this point?
    When is Liam McGloughlin week?
    Amicone: 1 question: Why do you suck so much after John Spencer taught you everything he knew?
    Spencer. How could you have kept your best kept political savy to yourself – this guy Amicone is the worst.
