NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three ceremonies will commemorate National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the beginning of National Police week.

Putnam County will honor officers at 10:00 a.m. at the sheriff’s office’s lower parking lot.

Monday night, Hendersonville will have its service at 6:00 at Hendersonville Church of Christ.
