National Police Remembrance Day


National Police Remembrance Day on September 29th each year, marks the day Australian Police Services stops to honour its officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

One of the most important days on the policing calendar, National Police Remembrance Day is a time for members of the Service and the community to remember, honour and say 'thank you' to the dedicated men and women who have died whilst on duty.



A memorial Service is also held at the Police Academy and Banrock Station each year.

Blue Ribbons

Police officers, staff and members of the public are encouraged to pay tribute by wearing a blue ribbon.

 

History

National Police Remembrance Day, first commemorated in 1989, is held each year on September 29 or the nearest working day, in memory of police officers killed in the performance of their duty.  A total of 61 local police officers have lost their lives in the performance of their duty since 1838 when the South Australia Police was formed.

Police Remembrance Day is observed on September 29th as it marks the Feast of the Archangel, St Michael, who was always fighting evil.
