Today, Sunday, 26 September 2021, Dyfed-Powys Police pause to mark the National Police Memorial Day and pay tribute to the fallen police officers who gave their lives to protect the public.
Since 2004, National Police Memorial Day has been a significant event in the policing calendar. Today at Lincoln Cathedral Dyfed-Powys Police Temporary Chief Constable (T/CC) Claire Parmenter will join a reduced audience of police colleagues, friends and family of fallen officers in a memorial service led by Canon David Wilbraham MBE to commemorate those who have been killed or died on duty.
In a personal tribute, T/CC Parmenter said: ““Every day, police officers up and down the country demonstrate courage and dedication of duty running towards danger to protect others from harm.
“Dyfed-Powys Police will never forget those sons and daughters who made the ultimate sacrifice serving their communities.
“Their memory shall live on. May they rest in peace.”
The force’s lead chaplain, Father Liam Bradley, will lead a local tribute in prayer at Dyfed-Powys Police headquarters.
Although numbers must be limited at both the local and national memorial services, a live stream from Lincoln Cathedral will be made available at 2pm and a highlights video will be released at 4pm. Both can be accessed through National Police Memorial Day website.
