Police Roll of Honour Trust

When was it established?

The Police Roll of Honour Trust is a registered charity, founded in 2000 with the following objectives:

1. To foster good citizenship for the benefit of the public at large by the construction and maintenance of a Roll of Honour in remembrance of every police officer killed in the line of duty.

2. To advance the education of the public and in particular the police, in the history of officers killed in the line of duty and officer safety by the maintenance of a comprehensive archive of information available to the public.

3. To relieve the need, in particular the emotional suffering, of bereaved families and friends of police officers who die or have died as a result of an injury received in the line of duty, by the provision of resources and services including care and support, advice and information.

What is it for?

The Trust was established to remember police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The Trust aims to name and honour every UK police officer who has died on, or as a result of duty since the earliest days of professional law enforcement over three centuries ago. The Trust maintains the Roll of Honour for the benefit of all police organisations and memorial charities, including the National Police Memorial Day; The Police Memorial Trust; Scottish Police Memorial; and the Metropolitan Police. The Trust is committed to providing a Book of Remembrance and the engraving of fallen officers’ names on a police memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.
