National Police Remembrance Day
Each year, across Australia and the Southwest Pacific National Police Remembrance Day is observed at services held on the 29th of September.
National Police Remembrance Day is a significant day of commemoration where people can reflect on each individual police force and remember those officers killed on duty. It provides an opportunity to honour all Police who have given their lives serving the Australian and Southwest Pacific communities.
The National Police Memorial was opened in 2006 with the names of 719 fallen officers inscribed on brass touch stones, including the respective officer’s rank, name, jurisdiction and place and date of death. Currently the names of 749 police officers are inscribed on the National Police Memorial, dating back to the 1803 death of Constable Joseph Luker in Sydney.
