MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. --

Minot Air Force Base personnel and families celebrated National Police Week 2018, May 14-18. National Police Week is a congressionally honored week celebrating law enforcement personnel across the nation and around the world who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

Here are the six highlights throughout the week!

1. Hosted a Parade:

Members of the Minot Police Department, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and Team Minot security forces, including McGruff the Crime Dog, marched and drove through base housing during the parade.


 

2. Visited Schools:

The 5th Security Forces Squadron and 91st Security Forces Group members held school visits at North Plains Elementary, Dakota Elementary and Memorial Middle School.

During these visits, a full range of vehicles were on display for base occupants to tour, including law enforcement patrol vehicles and BearCats, or wheeled armored personnel carriers. Military Working Dog handlers and the Security Forces Tactical Response Team performed several demonstrations.

 

3. Pistol Match:

The Combat Arms Training and Maintenance range personnel held an Excellence-In-Competition Elementary Pistol Match. Competitors fired 10 rounds three times, giving them the chance to fire one-handed, two-handed and double-action two-handed.

 

4. Relay Challenge:

During the relay challenge, five teams competed in a 400 meter dash, Humvee push, pull-up challenge, dummy carry across the track, sit-up challenge, tire flips and a 400-meter dash to end. Several squadrons participated in the event in which the 5th Force Support Squadron team was victorious.

 

5. Softball Tournament:

Base residents and local law enforcement were invited to a softball tournament. Five squadron teams competed in single-elimination brackets with the 791st Missile Security Forces Squadron team coming out on top.

 

6. Retreat Ceremony:

All base residents, families and local law enforcement personnel were invited to a retreat ceremony to pay tribute to all military and law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice throughout the years.

Members of the Minot Police Department, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, Air Force National Guard and other local law enforcement officers shared biographies of military and law enforcement officers who have lost their life in the line of duty.


“Police Week is important not only to the Peace Officers but to the families of them and the community,” said Staff Sgt. Erica Radcliff, 5th Security Forces Squadron law enforcement desk sergeant. “The most important part of Police Week is when we as a community come together to pay our respects and honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.”
