From Website: "National Police Remembrance Day marks the day the Queensland Police Service, joins other Australian police jurisdictions to stop and honour fallen officer. The Queensland Police Service has 140 officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Arguably one of the most important days on the policing calendar, National Police Remembrance Day is a time for members of the Service and the community to remember, honour and say 'thank you' to the dedicated men and women who have died whilst on duty.
This year, marches and services will mainly be held on Friday, September 27 2013 all over the State."
On Friday the 27th of September 2013 Police from across the State will be observing National Police Remembrance Day.
This year will take on a special significance for the entire Tablelands community, as it will be the first Police Remembrance Day since the tragic passing of our own, Constable Casey Blain.
A march will commence from the corner of Byrnes and Middlemiss Street at 9:30am and officers past and present will march to Saint Thomas Catholic Church on Constance Street, Mareeba where a service to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice will be conducted.
This year the Police would like to extend an invitation to all schools, service or sporting clubs, community groups or individuals to march with the police officers. They would particularly appreciate the involvement of any organization that Casey was involved.
If you would like to march to support Police Remembrance Day, please form up with the parade on Middlemiss Street Mareeba from 9.00am for the march off at 9.30am.
You are also welcome to attend the church service which will commence at 10.00am.
