Police And Peace Officer Memorial - Sunday September 25, 2016

Police and Peace Officers will gather in Regina on Sunday, September 25, 2016, for the 13th annual Saskatchewan Police and Peace Officers Memorial.

In 1998, the Government of Canada officially proclaimed the last Sunday in September as Police and Peace Officers National Memorial Day. In announcing the commemorative day on September 27, 1998, the Solicitor General of Canada stated, "A formal, national memorial day gives Canadians an opportunity each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication of police and peace officers, who make the ultimate, tragic sacrifice to keep communities safe".

Since 2004 Saskatchewan Police and Peace Officers have been recognizing this event with a parade and ceremony in Regina.
