Proclamation Designating May 15, 2013 Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 12-18, 2013 as Police Week - In 1962, President John F. Kennedy first signed a proclamation designating May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors of officers killed in the line of duty and supporters of law enforcement. Now, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events, which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Commissioner Rheubottom made a motion to adopt the proclamation designating May 12-18, 2013 as Police Week in Kill Devil Hills, and May 15, 2013 as Peace Officers Memorial Day. Commissioner Pitt seconded that motion and approval was unanimous, 4-0.
As adopted this proclamation will be shared though the Town’s electronic distribution lists, placed on Facebook, sent it to all members of the Police Department, and posted on Town bulletin boards.

Outer Banks Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Coalition - T he coalition will host a Ride of Silence and a Walk of Silence on May 15th beginning simultaneously from the Baum Senior Center in Kill Devil Hills at 7 pm.
The two silence events are being held in memory of pedestrians and cyclists killed on the roads of the Outer Banks. Prior to the Ride and Walk beginning there will be a short ceremony with remarks by a coalition member, the Mayor of Kill Devil Hills Shelia Davies, and a prayer by Rev. Bob Pitsch, who at the age of 93 is the most senior bike rider in the Outer Banks. Mayor Davies has also invited other elected officials, from Outer Banks municipal and Dare County governments, to attend and participate in the Walk of Silence.
Citizens of the Outer Banks are encouraged to participate in both events, with the stipulations that only experienced cyclists can participate in the Ride (children will not be permitted) and that those interested in doing the Walk, which will be 1.5 miles, can do so without stress. Further, walkers should "buddy up" by leaving one car at the southern end of the walk route near the Hotline shop or in the parking areas fronting Staples or TJ Maxx on the west side of Route 158. All participants in both events should assemble at the Baum Senior Center by 6:30 pm.
