The National Guard will work with you, and if necessary change your active duty dates for the two week training. Your scenario is unusual because most people go into a Reserve/National Guard unit at the age of 18. You can not get into the Academy until the age of 20 1/2. As far as the two week training after you're on the job, the department will put you on a Military leave status.
My suggestion is, don't attempt to do both at the same time. The academy may just drop you.
When was the first Police Memorial Day?
May 15 has been National Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the week containing May 15 has been National Police Week, since President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 on October 1, 1962.
Looks like 2005.
do police officers wear the black tape thing national law enforcement week?
My department we reserve the black mourning band for recently deceased in the line of duty officers.
We also drape the office or station the officer worked in in black and blue bunting.
For Police Week we have a parade of officers in dress uniform with pictures of LOD death officers along the route. We then have a memorial service at our memorial wall.
We wear and fly from our vehicles a blue ribbon in memorial during police week.
