LETTER TO THE EDITOR
National Police Remembrance Day
This Friday 29 September I encourage the community to pause and reflect on the sacrifice of our fallen NSW Police officers for National Police Remembrance Day.
Special ceremonies will be held across the country to honour, respect and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our community.
Every year we gather to remember the men and women who dedicated their lives to the safety of others.
Our police officers go to work day in and day out not knowing what they will confront in the line of duty, or whether they will return home safely at the end of their shift.
On this day it is important that we acknowledge those officers who have lost their lives as a result of their policing career. But we must also pay our respects to our local men and women in blue who work tirelessly to keep us safe from harm every day.
We should never take the contribution of our police for granted.
If you see an officer out on the beat, please stop them and thank them for the work they do.
On National Police Remembrance Day, let us all stand with the entire police family to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of community safety.
