National Police Memorial Day


The NPMD was founded in December 2000 following the brutal killing of a Kent Police Officer. It has become an official national day to provide a dignified and sensitive service of remembrance to honour the ultimate sacrifice of Police Officers throughout the UK. The first service was held on 30th October 2004 at St. Pauls Cathedral. It now rotates around each of the four nations of the UK and is held annually on the nearest Sunday to 29th September. The Patron of the NPMD is HRH the Prince of Wales.

In 2020, owing to the Covid-19 restrictions the event had to be held virtually. This can now be viewed on the NPMD website where all other information may be found. The website address is
