At a special ceremony in October 2019, a newly reprinted Police Roll of Honour Trust Roll of Remembrance was placed into the National Police Memorial in The Mall, London.
The expanded Roll, which was researched, compiled and is maintained by The Police Roll of Honour Trust charity, contains the names and a personalised citation of almost 5,000 police officers who have lost their lives in the service of the British people.
The Police Memorial Trust decided some years ago to replace the bespoke Roll of Honour that was commissioned by their founder, Mr Michael Winner, with the Roll provided by the Police Roll of Honour Trust.
The memorial is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year and the pages of the memorial book are turned Monday to Friday so that fallen officers’ loved ones, colleagues, and the public can visit and see the book open on their officers name.
The Chair of the Police Memorial Trust, Mrs Geraldine Winner said:
“We were honoured to accept the new Police Roll of Honour here at the National Police Memorial.”
“There is no more fitting location in the United Kingdom than here, in the nation’s newly refurbished National Police Memorial.”
“We are pleased to announce the next phase of our extensive refurbishment work will be working with the Police Roll of Honour Trust to create a new state of the art interactive digital system which visitors to the National Police Memorial will be able to access to see details of fallen officers.”
The first stage of refurbishment saw the installation of the stunning ‘Blue Lamp’ light feature which now illuminates the memorial’s glass column from dusk till dawn.
