Force pauses to remember its fallen

NATIONAL Police Remembrance Day is one of the most important events on the NSW Police Force calendar.

It is a day where members of the NSW Police Force and the community remember those officers who have given their lives in the course of their duties.

Police Remembrance Day is an annual event that is traditionally observed on September 29.

This year's service will be held on the traditional date, Monday, September 29 at NSW Police Wall of Remembrance in The Domain, Sydney, as well as other locations across the state, nation, and the South West Pacific region.

In remembering our fallen officers from the NSW Police Force, we also remember fallen officers from Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa and the Solomon Islands.

NPRD is also a time to remember both sworn and unsworn members of the NSW Police Force who lost their lives through illness, accident or other circumstances in the previous 12 months.

Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command residents are invited to attend the following services on Monday, September 29 at Sawtell Catholic Church, 44 Boronia St, Sawtell at 10am and Grafton Anglican Cathedral, Duke St, Grafton at 2pm.
