It's National Police Week, and there are events planned all over the region.

A memorial and tribute service, including a candlelight vigil, is planned tonight in Woodbridge, Va. It's being put together by Prince William County's Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association. The event is to honor the 15 fallen law enforcement officers who lived or served in Prince William County since the first one was killed, Justice of the Peace Thomas Simms Meredith in 1922.

The memorial starts at 7 p.m. in the 15,000 block of Cardinal Drive.
