National Police Week 2011

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week determining the dates for National Police Week 2011 — Sunday, May 15th through Saturday, May 21st.

For the past 23 years, an annual Candlelight Vigil is held at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. The Candlelight Vigil is traditionally held on May 13th, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls. Every six or seven years, May 13th falls prior to the official start of National Police Week, as it did in 2011. View Photos from this year's Candlelight Vigil

Each year the Fraternal Order of Police and the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary host The Peace Officers Memorial Day Service at the U.S. Capitol. This service is always held on May 15th, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement.

Kansas set to honor fallen law enforcement officers

In honor of National Police Week and National Peace Officers' Memorial Day, the State of Kansas will be having its annual Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony this week. National Police Week is held May 15-21 this year, and National Peace Officers' Memorial Day is held annually on May 15. The Kansas services will take place this year on May 6. The public is encouraged to attend the memorial events that take place in Kansas.

The 29th Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 6 at the Law Enforcement Monument, located on the northeast quadrant of the Statehouse grounds in Topeka. The ceremony will begin at 12:00 p.m.

The Kansas Highway Patrol and multiple other Law Enforcement Agencies will be tying blue ribbons to agency-owned vehicles and encouraging civilian workers to outfit their vehicles with the ribbons during the special observance to honor these fallen officers, as well as their families. A limited supply of the official ribbons will be available at many Kansas law enforcement agencies, including your local Kansas Highway Patrol Troop headquarters. If the official ribbons are not available, any 18-inch strip of royal blue ribbon will show your support.

Three fallen Kansas law enforcement officers' names will be added to the monument this year:

Seven days a week: 12:00 am-5:00 am

Updates are occasionally provided outside of these hours. However, the regular hours are the only time that I am for sure monitoring my equipment.

Note: Hours are subject to change should a new media contracts arise or current media contract be expanded.

Believe it or not, Operation 100 News is the work of only one person. It all started with one 100 channel analog scanner back in 1996. At that time I only monitored Law Enforcement in Johnson County, along with Fire Departments and Med-Act of Johnson County. Today, Operation 100 News has six scanners, four of which are capable of monitoring Digital P25 Radio Systems, an outdoor, roof mounted antenna, and two dedicated computers. I have been tracking Johnson County since 1996 and Douglas County since 2002.

Operation 100 News has been around since 2003 as a dream of immediate public notification of unfolding emergency situations in your neighborhood, letting you know what is happening nearby to keep you and your family aware and safe. 

I currently monitor Police, Sheriff, Fire and Medical county-wide for Douglas and Johnson County.

Operation 100 News is a 100% free service to the General Public, with more than 50 hours dedicated to its operation each week by one person and funding is extremely tight. Currently funded by personal funds, occasional public donations and 
news media contracts. 

At first Operation 100 News called and notified other news media's news desks to unfolding situations and responded to incident scenes. After several failed attempts at cooperation with KC area media, this changed to a by contract only service for local media. Previous efforts were mainly one-sided with KC media outlets taking whatever information I could offer them, very few realizing the potential of what Operation 100 News could provide. Several news outlets within my coverage area have since contracted with me. Those outlets receive a phone call to their contact person when news breaks that they have contracted me to notify them of.

Operation 100 News never has and will never solicit anyone for any donations. This information has been made available after receiving requests from followers wanting to know how to donate to keep this going. If you wish to donate to help keep Operation 100 News an advertisement free service, the fastest, safest and easiest way of making a donation is through Paypal. You do not need a Paypal Account to be able to donate. You can use the Paypal Donate button on the right column of this page or this link, Make a donation using Paypal. If you wish to donate by another method, please email with "Donate" in the subject line.  

Weather Information:
Tweets are NOT INTENDED to be your only source for weather news. A NOAA Weather Radio is a great option to have handy. More Information here

I am also available to be contracted by local news media outlets to provide your business, organization, newspaper or television news outlet with direct telephone notifications of Breaking News events. News Media Notification Page.
