Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service

Sunday, September 28, 2014
Ottawa, Ontario

On September 24, 1998 the Government of Canada officially proclaimed the last Sunday of September of every year as Police and Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day. This National Memorial Day gives Canadians an opportunity each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication of police and peace officers, which made the ultimate tragic sacrifice to keep our communities safe.

Unfortunately, our comrades are falling at an alarming rate; six to eight officers a year for the last twenty-three years. We now have a total of approximately seven hundred officers on the Honour Roll. The importance of their sacrifice is overwhelming.
