Police Remembrance Day

Police Remembrance Day

Residents invited to attend a remembrance ceremony

A service is being held on Monday in Echuca as part of Police Remembrance Day.

The official day is on Sunday, but community members are invited to attend Monday's Service.

Inspector for the Murray River Police District Paul Huggett said it is a chance to show support for the local police.

"It's a day for police and community to come together and remember police that have died throughout Australasia," he said.

"That's open to all members of the public that may want to come along.

"It's a short, half hour, church service so we can come together as a community and remember those police and emergency service personnel who have lost their lives in the past 12 months."

Insp. Huggett said their presence in the community is important.

"We're part of the community," he said.

"All of the local police are local - we live here, we have kids at school here, we have partners at school here.

"Whether you like us or love us, we're part of your community as much as the next person so it's our chance to remember our community."

The service will be at 11am on the 30th of September at the Christ Church Anglican on High Street.
