Each year we pause on National Police Remembrance Day to remember our fallen colleagues and honour the ultimate sacrifice they made.
This year, the Queensland Police Service will commemorate National Police Remembrance Day on Friday, September 28.
National Police Remembrance Day is the most significant day on the police calendar and is an opportunity for officers and members of the public to honour those police officers whose lives were lost while performing their duties.
It is also a time to remember the families, partners, friends and colleagues who have also sacrificed and lost so much.
With vigils being held all over the State, members of the public are invited to attend their local service to stop and remember the fallen officers who gave so much in the line of duty.
Here are details for the Brisbane vigil and service…
