You may encounter traffic delays if you’re traveling through a Police Week event. Here are the ceremonies in the near future:

On Monday, Police Week attendees will meet at New Jersey Avenue and F Street Northwest at 4:30 p.m., then march to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial at 6 p.m. They will be accompanied by a marching pipeband.

A memorial service will be held on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol building at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The service concludes with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Officers Memorial.

Most Police Week ceremonies will take place at the Officers Memorial. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund site has a full list of this week’s events.
