The concluding event was the 3rd Annual Warrior Challenge, featuring athletic obstacles, testing the endurance of the competitors, followed by the Top Shot competition, and a barbecue.

"Police Week is a national recognition of our police officers around the U.S.," said Col Joseph Milner, Commander, 42nd Mission Support Group. "It remembers the sacrifices they have borne for the protection of the people in the community."

MSgt John Masiello, 42nd SFS, stated "This is the one time each year that we reflect on our brother and sister law enforcement professionals who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duties." He added "We need to remember them by supporting and comforting their surviving family members with open arms. Above all, conduct ourselves in a manner that will continue to shine an honoring light on their sacrifice."
