To mark the 15th anniversary of the building of the UK’s National Police Memorial in 2005, The Police Memorial Trust are proud to announce the launch of their new website.

The specially built website gives a unique insight into the work undertaken by the Trust over the last thirty five years. They unveiled their first memorial in 1985 following the murder of Yvonne Fletcher in St James’s Square, London.

It is a sad fact that the Trust have gone on to place a further forty nine memorials to a total of fifty five fallen British police officers.

The new website went live on Wednesday the 18th of November at precisely 12.01am.

The launch date is especially poignant in that it marks exactly fifteen years to the day since PC Sharon Beshenivsky was murdered in Bradford, West Yorkshire. In May 2009 the Trust unveiled a memorial to Sharon at the location of her murder.

The Trust’s new website contains individual pages dedicated to each of the fifty five officers they have erected memorials to, together with exclusive images of all the unveiling ceremonies.

Commenting on the new website The Chair of the Police Memorial Trust, Mrs. Geraldine Winner said:

“The launch of our new website marks the fifteen years since Her Majesty The Queen opened The National Police Memorial in The Mall in London.”

She added:

“The new website gives the families, the wider police family and the public a lasting historical record of the commemoration of the brave police officers to whom we have erected our memorials.”
