- National Police Remembrance Day 2016 - Canberra

This National Police Remembrance Day marked the 10th anniversary of the National Police Memorial on the northern shore of Lake Burley Griffin.

The memorial honours more than 750 members of Australian police forces who have died in the line of duty since 1803.

Senior Constable First Class Michael Read; Who's name is one of seven which will now join those of other police officers who died doing their duty.

Despite the inclement weather, National Police Remembrance Day in Canberra was marked with an evening service, a parade and, oddly, random breath-testing.

Perhaps most importantly, it was a chance for police officers from all parts of Australia to gather and remember their friends who no longer stand shoulder to shoulder with them.

- 2016 Wall to Wall Police Ride for Remembrance

 

2016 is the 7th year of the Ride for Remembrance.

The 'Wall to Wall Ride for Remembrance' is an opportunity to come together in the spirit of camaraderie to honour those killed in the line of duty, or who have died as a result of their duties, both on Australian soil and overseas.

The purpose of this event is to raise much needed funds for Police Legacies across the country. It also raises awareness of the fact that Police Officers put their lives on the line for us each day and sometimes make the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy a safe and orderly society.

Families left behind need emotional, moral and financial support.

The riders gather on Saturday 17 September at the National Police Wall of Remembrance in Canberra to pay tribute to fallen officers.

National Police Remembrance Day is celebrated on the Patron Saint of Police's special day - St Michael's Day.

The 29th of September each year is a poignant reminder for us all, of the sacrifice and service that men and women in Police forces around Australia and the Pacific provide to our community.

- Hiking Kokoda

Walking the Kokoda Track, in the footsteps of the

soldiers, who fought to save Australia from invasion

in 1942, is an almost spiritual experience and one that

will stay with me forever. I hold enormous gratitude

and respect for the Diggers who endured such

hardship and sacrifice in the Kokoda Campaign of

World War 2.
