Navajo Police Officer Day

Please be advised that pursuant to Resolution No. CJY-53-20, the Navajo Nation Council amended Legislation CO-64-17 declaring the second Friday in May to be known as "Navajo Police Officer Day" within the Navajo Nation.

Effective July 2, 2020, the Navajo Nation Council found it to be in the best interest of the Navajo Nation to provide for "Navajo Police Officer Day" to be an observed day, as distinguished from a paid holiday.

Therefore, the "Navajo Police Officer Day" will no longer be a paid holiday as outlined in the Navajo Nation Personnel Policies Manual (NNPPM). Further, Resolution No. CJY-53-20 provides up to four (4) hours of Administrative Leave to Navajo Nation employees to attend Navajo Nation Police Officer Day events held on the Navajo Nation.
