Police Awareness Day Luncheon Draws Crowd

Photos by Rich McManus

NIH marked Police Awareness Day on May 17 with a cookout, police K-9 team demonstrations and other displays during National Police Week May 14-18. National Police Week is dedicated to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The Police Branch, the Emergency Management Branch, the Crime Prevention Branch, the Employee Transportation Services Office and the Ridefinders Program staffed information booths and handed out giveaways on various aspects of public safety. Police officers and firefighters offered tours of the NIH Police Mobile Command Center and gave briefings on NIH fire apparatus. Members of the Police Branch served more than 325 lunches in front of Bldg. 1. Earnings of more than $1,600 will be donated to NIH charities.

Serving on the chow line are NIH Police employees (from l) Cpl. Kendall Bey, Maj. Robert Fuller, Patricia Haynes and Scott Noullet.
