FLAGS LOWERED FOR NATIONAL POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL DAY

September 22, 2017 – The flags at Timmins City Hall and other municipal buildings will be flying at half-mast in honour of Canadian Police and Peace Officer’s Memorial Day on Sunday, September 24.

This National Memorial Day gives Canadians an opportunity each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication of police and peace officer, who made the ultimate tragic sacrifice to keep our communities safe.

In 1978, the first Memorial honoured 14 officers. In 2017, the names of over 860 fallen officers are engraved on the Honour Roll tablets, which are now located in their new temporary location, along the perimeter wall on Parliament Hill, near East Block, close to the Famous Five statues.
