Registration for the 2019 National Police Week 5K (NPW 5K) Run/Walk is now open. DSF and DSSAA (Diplomatic Security Special Agents Association) are sponsoring Team DS.

DS Team from the 2015 NPW 5K

Join more than 2,000 runners and walkers in Washington D.C. at the National Police Week 5K, hosted by the Officer Down Memorial Page, to kick off Police Week as we run to remember the 23,000+ fallen officers who have given their lives in the line of duty in U.S. history. Proceeds benefit the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), two organizations that honor fallen officers and provide support to their survivors.

Team DS:
Team DS is traditionally one of the largest teams to run/walk the NPW 5K. Last year, Team DS won the overall race with the fastest average time, calculated from each team's top three fastest times. DSS SA Josh Peterson finished 2nd place overall in the 5K. We invite all DS Employees, contractors, family members, and friends to come run as part of Team DS. Families and children are welcome and encouraged. Please see the links below for the schedule of events. There are formal events at Judiciary Square and informal events at RFK Stadium which include music and displays.
