HARRISONBURG -- It's National Police Week. Members of the city's police department unveiled a wall for police chiefs who served the city.

About 20 people showed up to see the unveiling.

Former Police Chief Donald Harper's picture is now on the wall. He served the city of Harrisonburg as police chief for 20-years. He retired last year.

Harper is the 17th police chief to serve with HPD. Harper said he appreciates the new wall and the work that the current chief is doing.

“It feels great, very honored, very humbled, experiencing, appreciate the current chiefs putting this together,” said Harper.

The ceremony was just one of many events happening this week in honor of National Police Week.

A wreath will be laid Wednesday at the national law enforcement officers memorial in Washington, D.C.
