CPD Marks Police Week with Ceremonies

The Champaign Police Department marked National Police Week (May 12-18, 2024) with events and ceremonies. These events included the annual Police Memorial and a Historical Dedication held on May 14, Police Employee Awards held on May 15. The department used the week’s celebration to offer opportunities for the Champaign community to learn about CPD’s storied history, including a pause to honor its three fallen heroes, a chance to view historical exhibits on display at CPD, and an evening of awards as officers were honored for their efforts in 2023. The week’s events also wrapped up with a fun event, the annual Cop on a Rooftop for Special Olympics on the morning of May 17.

Champaign Police wish to thank all of the elected officials, community members, City employees, family, and friends who attended events during the 2024 Police Week!
