Law Enforcement Officers Weekend (LEO Weekend) was established in 2016 and held its first inaugural event in May of 2017. Due to great success in 2017, we’ve established our second annual LEO Weekend to be held Father’s Day Weekend, June 15-17.
LEO Weekend is a three-day event (Friday-Sunday) which hosts an array of activities including a seminar series to shooting competitions, golf to comedy, fireworks to a memorial service and so much more. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly event, with activities for all ages! For a full list of activities and events, please go to www.LEOWeekend.com.
Last year, we were happy to have 98 registered attendees which consisted of both active & retired law enforcement officers of all ranks and different agencies from as far away as Illinois.
Our law enforcement officers consist of police officers, sheriffs, correction officers, parole officers, probation officers, peace officers, public safety officials and all others that hold the title of a law enforcement officer. In total, 300 family members, friends and LEOs were in attendance for our three-day weekend.
Additionally, we had the ability to host two families of fallen law enforcement officers to a fully expenses paid vacation to the weekend. This year, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting the family of Miosotis Familia, NYPD officer assassinated last year in the Bronx.
This year, we are proud to announce that we have received official support from the New York State Fraternal Order of Police. They will be hosting an executive board meeting in Lake George during our event, and will be inviting all 18,000 members to join them.
We have also teamed up with great sponsors, including Law Enforcement Today, one of the largest publication, radio and social media contributors to law enforcement.
We are looking for additional vendors, sponsors and partners to make our weekend unforgettable for our attendees and to continue building a great organization that will help and support many LEOs in the years to come.
If you and your company/organization are interested in discussing this opportunity further, please feel free contact me via email: [email protected]
I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have!
Again, please go to www.LEOWeekend.com to get a list of events and to learn more about our organization. I look forward to hearing from you.
