Members of the Durham Regional Police Service joined in the National Peace Officers' Memorial Run and Ride to Remember on September 24 to show their support for Sunday's memorial service in Ottawa.
The event is aimed at raising the public's awareness for the National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service held on Parliament Hill on the last Sunday of every September. It further 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.
This year, Durham Regional Police has committed a team of runners to be part of the more than 275 member relay team participating in the 460 kilometre run. DRPS cyclists are taking part in the biking leg of the journey.
These members are proud to represent DRPS in honouring the more than 860 colleagues in the law enforcement community who have fallen in the line of duty.
Members from DRPS, as well as thousands of police and peace officers from across the country, will be attending the 39th National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service on September 25.
