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.
Courage and Sacrifice
The murder of PC Keith Palmer at the gates of Parliament on 22nd March 2017 reminds us all of the selfless acts and bravery of our police officers who lay down their lives to protect our freedoms and keep us from harm.

"It is an immense privilege to be involved with a charity that is determined to see a proper Memorial built to reflect the immense sacrifice paid by our colleagues.
"The Police Family deserves a place of reflection for those who put the safety of citizens above any personal consideration every single day."
Sir Hugh Orde OBE QPM, Chair
"This great service is formed of people who will protect us and keep us safe, whose bravery and commitment mean they will run towards danger, and who are prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
"The national memorial will serve as a permanent honour to their memory and ensure that what they have given up for us is always remembered.”
Chief Superintendent Gavin Thomas, President, Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales
"When a Police Officer or Police staff member loses their live in a tragic incident it is a matter of public record and media interest often for a relatively short period of time. The cost of such loss is immeasurable, far more personal and lifelong.”
"To be able to offer practical, appropriate emotional and committed ongoing support is one way in which we can truly stand alongside those whose loved ones pay the ultimate price in maintaining our peace and security.”
