UK Police Memorial campaign
North Yorkshire Police has pledged its support to a campaign to raise funds for a new UK Police Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum near Lichfield in Staffordshire, which is home to more than 330 memorials.
Designed to be a permanent place for remembrance, the UK Police Memorial is planned for completion in 2019, and its design will incorporate the names of more than 1800 police officers and staff who died from injuries they received in the course of lawful duty since the service began. Names of fallen colleagues from North Yorkshire are expected to be amongst them.
The Memorial will cost £4m and more than half of that sum has already been raised. If you would like to find out more about this project, or if you would like to make an individual donation to support it, visit the website at www.ukpolicememorial.org
