Public invited to Nova Scotia Fallen Peace Officers’ Memorial Service

This Sunday marks the 35th annual Peace Officers’ Memorial Service held at Grand Parade, which honours Nova Scotian-based peace officers who died in the line of duty in Nova Scotia and elsewhere.

Peace officers, first responders, civilian employees, military personnel and volunteers will march from Police Headquarters on Gottingen St. to Grand Parade in Halifax prior to the service. Participants from across the province will then assemble at the Nova Scotia Fallen Peace Officers’ Monument for a brief ceremony to honour Nova Scotia peace officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Officers can’t do their jobs without the support and assistance from members of the public who want to do their part to make our community a safer place. This service provides an opportunity for the public and peace officers to come together to honour fallen officers.

Event details:

Who: Peace officers from across Nova Scotia

What: Fallen Peace Officers’ Memorial Service

When: Ceremony starts at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 15

Where: Peace officers, first responders, civilian employees, military personnel and volunteers will march from Police Headquarters on Gottingen Street to Grand Parade at 12:45 p.m. The ceremony will take place at the Nova Scotia Fallen Peace Officers’ Monument, which is located outside City Hall at Grand Parade.

Dignitaries will bring remarks and will lay wreaths along with peace officers and family members in memory of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
