Students from Lisa's 3s Preschool wore super hero capes and requested a super hero, Officer Milo Scott, to join them in recognition of Police Week 2018. These two groups enjoyed activities at the SW playground where the former swimming pool was before the tornado in 2010. They had a super time with Officer Scott.

NATIONAL POLICE WEEK Sunday, May 13 - Saturday, May 19, 2018 In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

The Wadena Police Department also pays special recognition to Officer Peter J. Resch and his family during this week. Officer Resch died on duty on May 19, 2005.
