MAP MONDAY: 2021 Best States for Police

National Police Week is May 10-15, 2021. This tradition of recognizing the service and sacrifice of law enforcement began in 1962, when President John F. Kennedy issued the first proclamation for Peace Officer’s Memorial Day and National Police Week. The week serves as a timely reminder of the wide range of varying work environments for law enforcement officers across the state and nation.

WalletHub recently compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 30 key indicators of police-friendliness, including the median income for law-enforcement officers, police deaths per 1,000 officers, and state and local police-protection expenses per capita.
