Scottish Police Memorial Trust

When was it established?

The Scottish Police Memorial Trust was founded in January 2003 to build and maintain a National Memorial which was unveiled by HRH The Princess Royal on 7 September 2004. The walls of the memorial are engraved with names reaching as far back as 1812. This is the first time that all such names have been displayed together, in a fitting tribute to the price officers have paid for protecting society. Research continues to identify the names of officers who lost their lives throughout the history of policing in Scotland.

What is it for?

The Trust provides a tangible indication to survivors that they are not alone in remembering their fallen officer.

The Memorial comprises three large blue pearl granite stones, which carry the names of all police officers known to have lost their lives on duty in Scotland.

It is located within the grounds of the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan Castle, Kincardine on Forth. The site is near to the entrance of the College and faces the main buildings, in an area that has been transformed into a landscaped garden, with seating and shrubbery, affording privacy to those survivors who wish to attend there privately.

The Memorial is open daily between 9am and 5pm daily.

The criteria to have your loved one to be honoured by the Scottish Memorial are available on their website.
