Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day 2018

2018 Ceremony to Honour Canadian Police Corps and Peace Officers.

On Sunday, September 30, 2018, we will celebrate the annual Canadian Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Day, a tribute to law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. Thousands attend this emotionally-charged event each year.

A Tradition of Great Importance for Law Enforcement Officers Is Kept Alive.

The memorial ceremony is held on Parliament Hill, and is open to the public. A parade of police officers on motorcycles, followed by musicians and flag-bearers, open the ceremony. Then, some people are invited to deliver eulogies to the deceased and speak of the importance of police work. Over the past 40 years, the names of more than 850 police and peace officers who died in the line of duty were added to the Honour Roll.
