The Government deeply values the dedication and sacrifice of police force personnel up and down the country.

The Home Office fully supports a number of memorials, including the existing National Police Memorial Day, the UK Police Memorial and the annual Emergency Services Festival of Thanksgiving and the UK’s Emergency Services Day (999 Day). The Home Office does not currently plan to create a further day of recognition for the service and sacrifice of police force personnel.
