The Association’s National Officers will represent the PSAEW at the National Police Memorial Day service in Cardiff on 24.9.2017.
The Memorial Day, now in its 144h year, honours police officers throughout the UK who have given their lives in the line of duty.
The service is held each year in one of the four countries of the UK, and takes place on the nearest Sunday to September 29, St Michael’s Day, who is the Patron Saint of Police Officers.
This year’s service is held at St David’s Hall in Cardiff and will bring together colleagues, family and friends from across the police service in remembrance of more than 4,000 officers.
Association President Gavin Thomas said:
“It is my privilege to represent the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales on National Police Memorial Day and to honour the memory of those officers who have lost their lives while serving.
“They are never far from our thoughts and we give our heartfelt thanks for their bravery and dedication.
“This is the same courage and selflessness shown by the policing family across the country every day, and I am proud to be a part of this family and to celebrate it.”
Vice President Paul Griffiths has been cycling to every police HQ in England and Wales this year to raise money for National Police Memorial Day.
He finishes his challenge this weekend by cycling from Gwent Police HQ to Cardiff and has covered around 2,100 miles to raise more than £3,000 for the charity.
