Today marks the 45th anniversary of the passing of Pearland Police Officer James Howard Cassidy, Jr. We honor his sacrifice and legacy of service to the community.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, 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 our Nation's Capital each year. This week the Pearland Police Department will be honoring three of our very own officers who lost their lives in the line of duty; End Of Watch - June 12, 2016 Officer - Endy Ekpanya End Of Watch - May 16, 1973 - James H. Cassidy Jr. End Of Watch - October 6, 1967 - Henry O. Wendell Jr.

“While the officer on the street is the most visible, we can't overlook the important work the Pearland Police Department's Jail Staff performs day in and day out. They have a tough job and definitely deserve to be recognized for what they do," - Chief J.L. Spires. The first week in May is when we recognize National Correctional Officers and Employees Week. This year from May 6th through 12th the Pearland Police Department will be taking this time to applaud the hard work and dedication of those who work in the Pearland City Jail and other various correctional facilities. The Pearland City Jail staffs fifteen jailers and one jail supervisor. Their day to day duties are to provide a secure and humane facility for inmates. The Jailers are an integral part of the Pearland Police Department and play an important role in the criminal justice system. National Correctional Officers Week is the perfect time to recognize the hard and often dangerous work. The nationwide tradition of recognizing corrections officers began May 5, 1984, when President Ronald Reagan delivered a proclamation designating the first week of May as National Correctional Officers Week. In 1996, the name of the week was modified by Congress to become National Correctional Officers and Employees Week to include other vital members of correctional system. On behalf of the Chief of Police, J.L. Spires and the Pearland Police Department please join us in thanking these public servants for their job well done.
