In conjunction with National Police Week, the Louisiana State Police will honor and remember the men and women of law enforcement who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, and will also recognize those who have gone beyond the call of duty at the annual State Police Memorial and Awards Ceremonies.

On Thursday, May 18th at 6:30 p.m., the annual Louisiana State Police Memorial Ceremony will be held at the LSP memorial in front of State Police Headquarters located at 7919 Independence Blvd. in Baton Rouge. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved indoors to the Training Academy auditorium.

On Friday, May 19th at 10:30 a.m., the annual Louisiana State Police Awards Ceremony will be held to honor Troopers, public safety personnel, and civilians from across the state for their extraordinary efforts over the past year. The ceremony will take place at the Louisiana State Police Training Academy Auditorium on Independence Blvd. in Baton Rouge.

Please join Louisiana State Police as we honor the service and sacrifice of our fallen and celebrate those who have excelled in protecting the citizens of Louisiana. Members of the public as well as media outlets are invited and encouraged to attend.
