National Police Remembrance Day


28th September   -  2012

National Police Remembrance Day

National Police Remembrance Day on September 29 marks the day the South Australia Police Service 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 held at Fort Largs Police Academy each year.

Blue Ribbons

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



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 29 as it marks the Feast of the Archangel, St Michael, who was always fighting evil.

BUT will be held on the 28th of September this year.
