Canadian Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial Day services take place on Sunday, Sept. 25th.
This national memorial day takes place during the last Sunday in September and offers Canadians the opportunity to honour and appreciate law enforcement officers who have dedicated their lives to keeping our country safe.
Over 860 fallen officers – including Const. John Petropoulos – are engraved on Honour Roll tablets, located on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
The 39th annual memorial service on Parliament Hill will include a parade, speeches, the reading of the entire Honour Roll and music by police choirs.
Meanwhile, Alberta’s memorial ceremonies will take place at 1 pm on the south grounds of the Alberta Legislature in Edmonton. The service – which will include pipe bands, wreath laying ceremonies and speeches – takes place at the Pillar of Strength monument.
Please make time to honour the fallen and recognize the sacrifice of our fallen police and peace officers
