A MAJOR engagement and consultation programme has been launched today (Monday, 17th October 2022) by the Police Arboretum Memorial Trust, creators of the UK Police Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
The consultation will help shape the future development of a complementary new Digital Memorial that will pay tribute to individual police officers and staff who have lost their lives while carrying out their lawful duties.
In a month-long programme of activity, representatives from across the police service, policing charities, families of the fallen and the wider public, will be asked for their views and opinions about what should be on the Digital Memorial and how people wish to engage with it.
People can participate and contribute to the consultation process by completing an online survey.
Chair of Trustees, Martin Hewitt, said: “It has always been the Trust’s ambition to develop a Digital Memorial that was accessible to those who cannot visit the UK Police Memorial at the Arboretum. This online tribute will extend policing dedication and commemoration to a wider national and international audience.
