The date for the annual Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial Service has been set for Charlottetown.
The RCMP Veterans’ Association (PEI) organizes the provincial memorial service on behalf of the PEI Chiefs of Police and the PEI Police Association.
In 1998, the Government of Canada proclaimed the last Sunday of September as Police and Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day. Memorials are held in many provinces and the 40th annual national memorial service will take place on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
The PEI service will be held Sunday, September 24 at 2:00 p.m. at Zion Presbyterian Church.
