The vision for the new UK Police Memorial is to pay tribute to the United Kingdom’s Police Service and to honour the dedication, courage and sacrifice of its members who have given their lives to serve and protect our communities, through: 

A new memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.

Commemoration of the brave men and women of the Service.

An educational programme to foster understanding and appreciation of UK Policing.


The new UK Police Memorial will honour the dedication, courage and sacrifice of many of the thousands of members of the United Kingdom’s police service who have given their lives to serve and protect their communities since the establishment of the world’s first recognised police service over 250 years ago.
