Addressing guests the Home Secretary, the Rt. Hon. Sajid Javid MP said:
“The last few years have undoubtedly been a trying time for our police, but they have never flinched from doing their duty and in return it is our duty to ensure that we honour all those who have lost their lives.
The UK Police Memorial will provide a focal point for us to pay tribute to them.
It will provide a peaceful place for reflection where every fallen officer is recognised.”
