This year marks the 13th annual remembrance service of the National Police Memorial Day (NPMD) which will take place at St Paul’s Cathedral on Sunday 25 September 2016.
Around 2000 attendees are expected to be in attendance, including senior officials in policing and government, as well as His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, Patron of National Police Memorial Day.
We will pay tribute to the officers lost in the last year – PC Douglas Wiggins, Police Scotland; PC Sahib Lalli, Metropolitan Police Service; and PC Dave Phillips, Merseyside Police.
As in previous years, we will be managing the communications and media on behalf of National Police Memorial Day and to ensure that we have a co-ordinated approach to the media, and to respect the wishes of Inspector Joe Holness QPM, we have a list of agreed designated spokespeople to speak on behalf of the event. We will also be liaising with relevant families in relation to coverage.
All of the detailed information will be included in a special e-bulletin due out next week, which will include the list of designated spokespeople, as well as more details on what our communications and media activity will be in the lead up and on the day.
In the meantime if you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
