Today we remember Police Constable Patrick Dunne of the Metropolitan Police who was murdered on this day in 1993.

In a gang related attack three gunmen shot and killed a man on Cato Road, Clapham, London.

By pure coincidence, P.C Dunne was in a house nearby dealing with a routine call. On hearing the gunfire, the officer rushed into the street to investigate.

On seeing the unarmed officer one of the gunman opened fire and shot him in his chest, killing him instantly.

Witnesses heard the trio laugh and saw them fire celebratory shots in the air as they walked away.

Patrick who was 44 years of age and married. He had joined the police four years previously.

We unveiled our memorial to P.C Dunne on the 25th June 1996 outside 28 Cato Road, London.

Today we remember Police Constable Keith Henry Blakelock QGM, of the Metropolitan Police.

The officer was murdered in 1985 in London whilst protecting London firefighters during a large scale riot.

The officer, his colleagues and firefighters were attacked with such overwhelming violence they were forced to retreat in fear for their lives. As they did they were attacked by a mob armed with machetes, knifes, bricks and paving stones.

Unfortunately as PC Blakelock ran he tripped and fell to the floor. Dozens of rioters then attacked the officer inflicting horrific injuries as he lay helpless on the ground.

Keith’s colleagues bravely went to his assistance and managed to disperse the rioters long enough to recover Keith. He was placed in an ambulance but died on the way to hospital.

Keith was 40 years of age. He left behind his wife and three children.

Police Constable Blakelock was later posthumously awarded the Queen’s Gallantry Medal.

We were honoured to place our memorial to Keith’s service, sacrifice and bravery in November 1986 at the Muswell Hill Roundabout, London.

As long I'm alive, I'll NEVER be against the police or show any sort of animosity in any way : what happened to Officer Blalelock is totally inexcusable.

This still saddens me to this day, a police officer attacked by a mob on British streets, RIP Pc Keith Blakelock. A true hero died defending our liberty. Forgotten by the media but not by the public.

The most horrendous of murders. Thank you for keeping Keith's memory alive. May his memory be a blessing.

Being 10 years old at the time of the riots and living on the estate, I remember this event and the aftermath and it is still with me today and will never go away. This night should never have happened and nobody should have lost their lives R.I.P

Still shocks me as much today as it did that day. RIP Keith, patrol heavens streets πŸ™

Such a sad loss. Respect brave officer.

He died in the most awful circumstances, but showed amazing bravery and determination to do his duty as a police officer. An amazing man.

Thank you for your service and shame on those who took your life.

Rest in peace my friend. I think of you as I think of all officers and all forces with great respect. Until the next shift rest easy

RIP, a wasted life of a brave dedicated officer thank you sir for your service.

My year of joining the police. So barbaric and awful a death. Never forgotten .

Never forgotten. RIP.

You are not forgotten. Rest in Peace Officer .

Rest in peace brother !!

RIP. Never forgotten. πŸ₯²

Never ever forgotten. RIP

God bless him always in our thoughts X

Such a waste of life that could have been so easily avoided, RIP

RIP Keith πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

Heartbreaking, even all these years later. I only live a few streets away from where he was killed and pass the spot sometimes. One of the most horrific events in recent years. His family will never get over this tragedy πŸ˜ͺx

RIP Keith … you will never be forgotten

Respect and thanks for this brave police officer, condolences to his family, always remembered, never forgotten

Rest in peace Keith 🌹

Such a brave man. Gone but never forgotten. Thinking of your family and friends today x

Thank you for our brave police officers, not forgetting our K9's. God bless you all πŸ™

Today we remember Police Constable David Phillips of the Merseyside Police who was killed on this day in 2015.

P.C Phillips was killed in Wallasey on the Wirral as he was about to deploy a stopping device in front of a stolen vehicle on a duel carriageway.

On seeing the officer the driver deliberately mounted the central reservation area in order to hit the officer.

David was 34 years of age and left behind his wife and two children.

We unveiled our memorial to the officer service and sacrifice on the 12th Ocober 2017 in Hamilton Square Gardens, Birkenhead, Merseyside.

In reaction to the appalling murder of Sir David Amess MP a commentator on national TV said β€œNo one is expected to risk their lives for the sake of their job”. It’s a sad reality but that is exactly what police officers do every time they go out on patrol. #HonouringThoseWhoServe
