You might not have noticed, to be fair, I didn’t even notice, but then I have been away this weekend, but today was National Police Memorial Day.
Yes, national Police Memorial Day, when officers and families gather to pay tribute to and remember police officers who have died or been killed on duty. The event occurs on the nearest Sunday to St Michael’s day, St Michael being the patron saint ofÂ policeÂ officers. (I’m surprised theÂ policeÂ are still allowed to have a patron saint; I’m sure having one would offend so many different groups).
I think we’ve got a long way to go in the UK to advertise and promote National Police Memorial Day. It’s been going for 7 years and nobody has ever heard of it.
