National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community. National Police Week occurs every May, and in 2023 the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund will commemorate it in the District with live, in-person events.
In anticipation of various Police Week events and First Amendment activities related to Police Week, MPD will implement several parking restrictions and street closures beginning May 11th and continuing through May 15th.
In addition to Campus Advisories, GW community members can find emergency preparedness resources at safety.gwu.edu. From the Ready GW webpage, GW community members can manage their GW Alert account to receive GW text alerts to their mobile device. For those who use mobile apps, the Ready GW webpage provides a link to download the GW Guardian App which pushes GW emergency alerts directly to the app, and features several other safety functions.
