UK Police Memorial
UK Police Memorial is the official charity of Security & Policing. In July 2021, the new UK Police Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire was unveiled and dedicated by HRH the Prince of Wales. The memorial recognises the courage and sacrifice of those from the UK Police service who have given their lives to keep us safe and protect us from harm. The Trust has recently launched Phase II of this project that will see the construction of walls naming those policing heroes, together with an enhanced digital memorial that tells the personal stories of those behind the badge. Phase II will allow us to extend the reach of the UK Police Memorial beyond those who just visit the Arboretum.
