The bravery and sacrifice of our police officers will be remembered this weekend at a special memorial in Belfast.
Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd is attending the annual National Police Memorial Day which takes place on Sunday 28 September at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast.
Tony said: “This is an annual day of reflection and recognition of the dedication to duty and sacrifice displayed by police officers throughout the UK. It’s also a day to stand shoulder to shoulder with their loved ones who have lost so much and I’m honoured to attend on behalf of Greater Manchester.
“It is particularly poignant for Greater Manchester as we remember those who lost their lives keeping our communities safe, including PCs Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes who were tragically killed in the line of duty only two years ago. But ultimately they are in our thoughts every day and we will never forget their sacrifice or their service.
“These officers represented the very best in policing and the biggest tribute we can make is to continue to work together – police and communities – to build safer communities.”
This is the 10th annual National Police Memorial Day. Visit www.nationalpolicememorialday.org to find out more.
