It’s not unusual for police officers to have prior military experience. This is evident by our roundup below, which features a variety of departments celebrating, thanking and honoring those who once served in the military line of fire but now serve their communities in the line of duty.

Is your department holding a special event to honor veterans who now serve as officers? Or maybe your agency unveiled a new cruiser that honors and shows appreciation to active duty members as well as veterans? Email us at and we’ll add it to our list below.

And from all of us at Police1, thank you to all those who have served and those who continue to serve.
