National Police Memorial Day
The National Police Memorial Day is held once a year in the UK to remember all the police officers who have died in the line of duty. The event is organised by a committee of people from the police family led by founder Joe Holness QPM and is always held on the Sunday closest to 29th September. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is patron of the day, a measure of the importance and profile of the occasion.
All survivors and their families are welcome to attend but you must register in advance for a ticket. Entrance to the service is strictly for ticket holders only.
The Next National Police Memorial Service will be held at York Minster on 30th September 2012.
