National Police Remembrance Day

October 2017

29 September marks National Police Remembrance Day, an annual event that commemorates the service and sacrifice of the members of the NSW Police Force who have lost their lives in the line of duty since the formation of the NSW Police Force in 1862.

In 2017 NSW Police Commissioner Michael Fuller joined hundreds of officers and distinguished guests at the NSW Police Wall of Remembrance in the Domain to commemorate fallen colleagues.

A further service was held on Friday 6 October at the NSW Police Memorial Wall at the Sydney Police Centre in Surry Hills which recognises both sworn and unsworn staff who have died whilst serving the community of NSW, or who were unable to continue working due to injury or illness and later passed away from that injury or illness. Together, we gathered to honour their service and contribution to the NSW Police Force and the wider community.
