Sunday’s memorial honours police and peace officers who have given their life in the line of duty

I have been wearing a memorial ribbon this week and no one seems to know what it is about.  The Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial this Sunday honors those police and peace officers who have given their life in the line of duty.  This year there were four officers killed – 3 from Ontario and 1 from Quebec.
Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Service is Sunday, September 26 in Ottawa.

As the website states: On September 24, 1998 the Government of Canada officially proclaimed the last Sunday of September of every year as Police and Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day. This National Memorial Day gives Canadians an opportunity each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication of police and peace officers, which made the ultimate tragic sacrifice to keep our communities safe.
Unfortunately, our comrades are falling at an alarming rate; six to eight officers a year for the last 23 years. We now have a total of approximately 700 officers on the Honour Roll. The importance of their sacrifice is overwhelming.
