Warwickshire Police Federation make a further donation of £9,000 to the UK Police Memorial Trust

Earlier this year Warwickshire Police Federation made a donation of £1,000 to the UK Police Memorial Fund. Warwickshire Police Federation Chair Simon Payne said "On behalf of the rank and file of Warwickshire Police we will present a cheque to the UK Police Memorial of a further £9,000 on the 7th December at the Warwickshire Police Federation. We will be presenting the cheque to trustee Sir Paul Scott-Lee.

"We are passionate in Warwickshire that the UK Police Memorial knows we support them and we can show this by our donation which equates to over £10 per police officer in Warwickshire.

"Our force, our federation and our members have never been shy in leading the way in doing what we believe is right for policing. The UK Police Memorial is of great national importance and we must support this place of remembrance.

"I urge my Police Federation colleagues from across the country to follow us in donating £10 per member to the UK Police Memorial Fund."

Chief Constable Martin Jelley QPM said "Every day police officers in Warwickshire and across the UK leave behind their families and loved ones to go out into their communities to protect people from harm, with no way of knowing what their day will bring. The sad reality is that on some very rare occasions officers never make it back home to those families and loved ones.

"The UK Police Memorial stands as a lasting legacy to the ultimate sacrifice, and symbolises our national recognition and appreciation that their sacrifices will not be lost from our memories"
