June 11th, 2008


Posted in The Job - General by 200

With the death of Pc Ian Terry in Manchester this week in a firearms training incident, I was reminded about those police officers who have died on duty.

Today was the anniversary of the death of PC Jon Henry stabbed to death in Luton on June 11th 2007.

The Police Roll of Honour contains 4 names for 2008, pop by if you want to spend a moment thinking about them.

Each year, at Christmas I put up a display of blue christmas lights in a tree in the garden, that’s my own private remembrance to police officers over the world. Two or three times a year I also pay a visit to the Officer Down Memorial Page which lists those killed in America. I defy anyone not to be touched by the messages of friends, family, colleagues & complete strangers left on every officer’s personal memorial page. I still think it’s a travesty that we don’t have something like that here.
