Village of Pelham Manor Recognizes the
PMPD During National Police Week

During National Police Week, Pelham Manor pauses to recognize our dedicated team in the Pelham Manor Police Department. We thank all of our officers who put their lives on the line to protect us, and we remember the fallen. We are truly grateful for the leadership of Chief Thomas Atkins and Lieutenant Gregory Sancho.


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.


National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community.
