NIH Police Awareness Day on May 12 marked National Police Week on campus, and included the traditional luncheon put on by members of the NIH Police. This year's fare included Cajun fried catfish and all the trimmings, as well as exhibits by the Police Branch, Emergency Management Branch, Crime Prevention Branch, Employee Transportation Services Office and Ridefinders Program. Those who bought lunches also earned raffle tickets good for such items as tickets to minor league baseball games, R&W gift certificates and video rentals, movie tickets and restaurant gift certificates.

Members of the Montgomery County and Rockville City police forces were also on hand, as was the NIH Police mobile command center. NIH's search dog Daisy also simulated a hunt for a bomb. The NIH Federal Credit Union sponsored the annual event, and also had an exhibit on the patio of Bldg. 31A.
