Enjoy respite, family, and camaraderie, at Law Enforcement Officer Weekend!
Law Enforcement Officer Weekend welcomes all law enforcement officers, active and retired, and their families from across the nation and Canada to Lake George for a fun, relaxing, and informative weekend.

Law enforcement officers and their families are encouraged to relax, unwind, and meet fellow officers.
