Time to remember our officers who have fallen in the line of duty

29 September 2021

Tasmania Police are committed to protecting the community every day and often have to put themselves in challenging and dangerous situations to perform their duties.

Today is National Police Remembrance Day and ceremonies will be held in Tasmania and around the country to honour officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

Tasmania is a safer place because of our brave men and women at Tasmania Police and we stand in solidarity to honour the brave officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our community.

The Tasmanian Government is proud to support our police force and all Tasmanians are urged to take a moment today to appreciate and recognise the vital and often dangerous, work they do to keep us all safe.
