West Yorkshire Police Federation were proud to present a cheque for £1,000 to the organisers of National Police Memorial Day at this year’s Police Federation of England and Wales conference.
From left to right are Sgt Joe Holness, his wife Sharon (who organise the annual event), West Yorkshire Police Federation chairman Nick Smart and our treasurer Craig Grandison.
This year’s National Police Memorial Day will be held on Sunday 28th September in Belfast.
The prestigious ceremony, to be held in the Waterfront Hall, honours police officers from throughout the UK who have given their lives in the line of duty.
Every year it is attended by royals, MPs, police chiefs, officers and officers’ family and marks a poignant moment to pay respects to lost friends and colleagues.
Sgt Holness, founder of the event, said: “The British Police Service is renowned worldwide and its unique and priceless reputation is entirely a reflection of the professionalism of the man and women who proudly perform the role.
“Sadly, each year police officers give their lives in order that we may live in peace. They place the safety of others above that of their own – they do so with pride and because they are the best.”
It is the 11th time the event has been held and is open to everyone from the police service.
To attend, you must register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07843 292 958.
