Sunday, Sept. 27th will mark the 17th year that Saskatchewan Police and Peace Officers pay tribute to and remember those that have lost their lives in the line of duty.
However, due to obvious circumstances, this year's ceremony will look much different. Unfortunately, there will be no mass gathering of Police and Peace Officers from across the province. There will be no parade and no wreath laying.
There will be a significantly abbreviated ceremony in front of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building that will include the reading of the Provincial Honour Roll followed by the traditional moment of silence. Instead of joining us in person this year, the organizing committee is instead encouraging members of the public to join us online. The Regina Police Service will be live-streaming the reading of the Provincial Honour Roll and ceremony at 11:00 a.m. at reginapolice.ca/live. There are 63 names on the Saskatchewan Honour Roll, dating back to 1877.
In 1998, the Government of Canada proclaimed the last Sunday in September as the Canadian Police and Peace Officers Memorial day to express appreciation for the dedication of Police and Peace Officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in their efforts to keep communities safe.
