Today saw the 9th annual National Police Memorial Day which saw a Police Memorial Service at York Minster, dedicated to the memory ofÂ the 4,000 police officers who have died on duty in the last 100 years.
I heard about it, after the fact, on the BBC News this evening.
Strangely, I didn’t hear one word about it, in the weeks leading up to it, from my force. No posters on the walls at HQ, noÂ mentions on the weekly orders that get out by the chief giving useful information to all the employees of the force, no emails, nothing, bugger all.
I do see posters, get emails and read on the weekly bulletin about Black History Month, Traveller Engagement Week, news and invites to attend any one of a number of Gay Pride events.
