Peter Smyth our Chief Executive attended The National Police Memorial Day, which this year took place on Sunday 28th September in the Waterfront Hall in Belfast. This annual events aim is to remember police officers who have been killed or died on duty, demonstrate to relatives, friends and colleagues of fallen officers that their sacrifice is not forgotten and to recognise annually the dedication to duty and courage displayed by police officers. Again this year the Patron His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales was in attendance, along with many families, friends and colleagues of our fallen.
During the service four candles are lit (one for each Home Country). This year the one representing England was lit by Heather Allbrook who is the sister of Yvonne Fletcher who was a Metropolitan Police Officer, when she was shot and tragically killed outside the Libyan Embassy 30 years ago.
