With tomorrow marking Remembrance Day, Halifax Regional Police is honoured to be a part of the many services in our community.
HRP will have representatives of our Colour Guard in attendance and members of our Executive Management Team laying wreaths at the following locations:
Camp Hill Cenotaph
Sailors Memorial, Point Pleasant Park
Earl Francis Memorial, Spryfield Legion
Korean War Memorial, Clayton Park South
Fish Hatchery Park, Bedford
Sullivan’s Pond, Dartmouth
We’ll also have representatives at services outside of our jurisdiction at Uplands Park, Hammonds Plains; Cole Harbour Place Cenotaph, Cole Harbour; Kinsac Cenotaph, Beaverbank; Windsor Junction Cenotaph, Windsor Junction; and Victoria Park, Windsor.
Like last year, HRP will also have an armed presence at the Remembrance Day services in our community to help ensure the safety of everyone honouring those who serve or have served our country, both those still with us and those who have passed on.
We expect the services to draw large crowds and remind people to plan ahead, arrive early and be patient coming and going as there’s often traffic congestion – both vehicles and pedestrians – around the various cenotaphs on this important holiday. There are also rolling street closures associated with Remembrance Day Parades. We ask both motorists and pedestrians to watch out for one another.
Remembrance Day services are a small way for us to pay tribute for the sacrifices for those who serve and have served. Lest we forget.
