28 September 2021

Tomorrow’s National Police Remembrance Day services call for reflection on the ultimate sacrifice made by brave Police Officers.

Northern Territory Police Association (NTPA) President, Paul McCue, said that 29 September is a special day for Police Officers and their families across Australia, and none more so in than in the Territory.

“We are very proud of every one of our past and present Police Officers, who undertake a dangerous and unpredictable job, each and every shift.

“National Police Remembrance Day is an opportunity to reflect on the service of our brave men and women.

“I encourage the Northern Territory community to say thank you to our Police, not just today, but each and every day.”

With the support of Minister for Police, Nicole Manison MLA and Shadow Police Minister Lia Finocchiaro MLA, as the sun sets on Police Remembrance Day we will see Parliament House and the Darwin Convention Centre lit blue this year.

We also thank the Commissioner of Police, Jamie Chalker APM, for his support in lighting up the Peter McAulay Centre and Palmerston Police Station.

We call on the community to Light it up blue tomorrow to remember our fallen comrades who sadly died in the line of duty, or died whilst serving.

Please go along and see our landmarks lit up blue, take a photo and tag us on social media to honour of our fallen mates.
