Officers killed on duty remembered
Sat, 29 Sep 2012 7:48a.m.
Police officers will gather today to remember colleagues killed in the line of duty.
Police Remembrance Day will be held on the banks of the Avon River in Christchurch from 11am.
Police Association president Greg O'Connor says the organisation has been fortunate over the past year as no officers have been killed.
However, he says, deaths in recent years are a sobering reminder of the challenges officers face.
"Those officers, like those slain on duty before them, made the ultimate sacrifice," he said.
"Police know their job is dangerous, but also that it must be done, to do all they can to give us all a society in which we can be safe."
Officers attending the ceremony will wear a feather-shaped pin on the day.
