First-grader Keivon Lane presented him with a policeman and child figurine.

Aikin Elementary School staff and students showered Officer Donnie Winton with gifts and treats in observance of National Police Week. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as National Police Week.

National Police Week pays special recognition to law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
