Halifax Regional Police is inviting members of the public to the Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Service this Sunday, October 18 at 11 a.m. to honour officers who have died in the line of duty in Canada during the last year and to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the years prior.
This years’ service will be held entirely onsite at Grand Parade. In previous years, there was a march to Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica for a church service. This is no longer the case. We would like to express our gratitude to the church for their gracious support over the years. For this years’ service, both sworn and civilian police personnel will march from Police Headquarters on Gottingen Street to Grand Parade prior to the ceremony. Peace officers from across the province will then assemble at the Nova Scotia Fallen Peace Officers’ Monument for a brief ceremony to honour Nova Scotia peace officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Officers can’t do their jobs without the support and assistance from members of the public who want to do their part to make our community a safer place. This service provides an opportunity for the public and peace officers to join together to honour fallen officers.
