Officers from Durham Regional Police Service joined in the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Run and Ride to Remember on September 26 to show their support for the upcoming memorial service in Ottawa.
The event is aimed at raising public's awareness for the National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service held on Parliament Hill on the last Sunday of every September. This year, Durham Regional Police has committed a team of 12 runners to be part of the more than 200 member relay team that will participate in the 460 kilometre run. Our Service also has nine cyclists joining in the biking leg of the journey.
These members are proud to represent the Service in honouring our brothers and sisters in the law enforcement community who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The run also provides the law enforcement community with the opportunity to personally honour and pay tribute to colleagues and comrades who have fallen in the line of duty.
Members from DRP, as well as thousands of police and peace officers from across the country, will be attending the 36th National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service on September 29. Sadly, eight officers’ names will be added to the memorial, along with three historic names.
For more information regarding the service in Ottawa, please visit the Canadian Police Association website.
