This year’s National Police Memorial Day will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral in London on Sunday 25 September.

The 13th annual event will remember around 4,000 officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty – and the names of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice over the past year will be read out.

Sgt Joe Holness, founder of National Police Memorial Day, said the event ensures that fallen officers are never forgotten and their “unique, proud legacy is forever treasured”. 

He added: “The British Police Service is renowned worldwide and its unique and priceless reputation is entirely a reflection of the professionalism of the men and women who proudly perform the role. 

“Sadly, each year police officers give their lives in order that we may all live in peace.

“They place the safety of others above their own – they do so with pride and because they are the best.”

The event and service returns to St Paul’s for the first time since the inaugural National Police Memorial Day in 2004. 

The 2016 service will begin at 3pm. 

To register, email nationalpolicememorialday@polfed.org or call 07843 293958.

Please provide the full names and contact details of those who want to attend and also indicate if there are any special requirements, such as wheelchair access.

Please let the organisers know by Friday 22 July 2016.
