The 2021 National Police Memorial Day service took place on 26 September as a hybrid event with a small gathering at Lincoln Cathedral, as well as an online service.
"NPMD exists to pay tribute to the brave men and women who gave us their all; long may we remember them, and their sacrifice." - John Apter, PFEW National Chair.
Around 5,000 police officers have died whilst on duty in the past 180 years, yet this sacrifice and exceptional dedication to duty remained largely unrecognised until as late as 2004. National Police Memorial Day serves to give formal recognition to police officers who have given their all to protect others and make their communities a safer place to live and work.
