The Washington Post

Welcome to police week

It’s police week in Washington, D.C., a time when cops from all over the country gather to discuss and celebrate all things law enforcement. A friend sends the photo below, snapped at a bar. She adds in an e-mail, “Couldn’t figure out what department he’s from, but the front of the shirt had the official logo of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund on it.”

More on t-shirts and police culture here.
