National Police Remembrance Day service, September 29

In commemoration of National Police Remembrance Day, police, their families and community members will pause on Tuesday, September 29 to pay tribute to fallen officers.

National Police Remembrance Day is held every year to honour police officers across the country who have lost their lives and ensure the integrity, courage and bravery of their ultimate sacrifice is never forgotten.

In Brisbane, this day is usually marked by a march through the CBD, followed by a service.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and concerns for the community’s safety, things will be a little different for our commemorative activities. Unfortunately, there will be no march or public service held this year.

The Queensland Police Service instead invites you to remember alongside them by joining in the viewing of a live streamed service on National Police Remembrance Day.
