Recent comments about the non existence of a NATIONAL POLICE MEMORIAL in the United Kingdom are totally false.
To be clear:
Her Majesty The Queen opened the National Police Memorial to our country’s fallen police officers in 2005.
It stands on Cambridge Green on The Mall at it’s junction with Horseguards, London.
The Memorial holds the Police Roll of Honour which contains names of nearly five thousands fallen officers.
The Memorial is open 24 hrs a day, 375 days of the year.
The Police Memorial Trust do a tremendous service not only to the memory of those Police officers who sadly died in the Line of Duty but also to their families and colleagues too by their continued support. Requiescant in Pace
It's a beautiful memorial to the Police that served, and died serving our Country and keeping us safe 🙏
How many days of the year?
Today we remembered DS Raymond Purdy of the Metropolitan Police was shot and murdered on this date arresting a blackmail suspect.
Ray was a 43 year old married man with a young family.
We were honoured to unveil the long overdue memorial to mark the officer’s service and sacrifice
The ceremony took where the office died at place at 105, Onslow Square, Kensington, London.
In attendance were the Met’s Assistent Commissioner Helen Ball, the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, senior members of the police staff associations and members of the extended police family.
Our guests of honour were members of Ray’s family, some of whose have flown in all the way from New Zealand especially for today’s tribute. wil
Our Chair Mrs. Michael Winner performed the unveiling ceremony.
As a very minor footnote in history D.S Purdy’s killer was the last person to hang in Britain for the murder of a police officer.
Respect and thanks for this brave officer always RIP
Rest in peace Mr Purdy. Murdered doing your duty. Thankyou The Police Memorial Trust .

Today we remember Police Constable Ian Dibell GM of Essex Police.
On this day in 2012 Ian was off duty at home when he was made aware that a man armed with a handgun was in the street outside attempting to murder one of his neighbours.
Having ensured the police were informed of the situation Ian, armed only with his warrant card and knowing exactly what danger he would face he went outside to help save his neighbour.
As Ian identified himself as a police officer his intervention gave the intended victim the opportunity to escape. As the officer attempted to arrest the gunman the man shot him at point blank range and killed him.
Ian was a 41 years old family man.
H.M The Queen later posthumously awarded the Ian the United Kingdom’s 2nd highest civilian bravery award, the George Medal.
We unveiled our memorial to Ian’s service, bravery and sacrifice in November 2015 in the Memorial Gardens on Marine Parade, Clayton-on- Sea, Essex.
Remembered wit respect, and thanks for his service, very brave man
A typical police officer. May he Rest in Peace

Today we remember Police Constable Jonathan Henry of Bedfordshire Police who was murdered on this day in 2007.
Jonathan had just started his shift when he attended reports of a mentally deranged man attacking members of the public with a knife in Luton town centre.
As the officer was attempting to arrest the offender he was himself attacked and fatally stabbed.
He was 36 years of age and married with a young child.
Jonathan was later posthumously awarded the Queen's Commendation for Bravery.
In 2008 we erected our memorial to this brave officer’s service and sacrifice in George Street, Luton.
