Fallen officers will be remembered at the National Police Memorial Day service which is being held in Belfast at the end of this month.
The annual service takes place Sunday 30 September at Waterfront Hall, Belfast and will be attended by West Midlands Police Federation chair Rich Cooke and secretary Steve Grange.
The event is now in its 15th year and honours police officers from across England and Wales who have given their lives in the line of duty.
Rich said: “I expect this to be an incredibly moving service. It will be attended by serving officers and the friends and family of those who have lost their lives in the course of duty. It will be a poignant reminder of the sacrifice brave officers have made.”
National Police Memorial Day (NPMD) was founded by Joe Holness in 2001 to ensure fallen officers are honoured and that their unique, proud legacy is forever treasured.
Each year the event is held in a different country of the United Kingdom and is attended by chief constables, police and crime commissioners and the Home Secretary.
HRH The Prince of Wales is patron of the NPMD charity and has attended the service in the past.
