Speaking of the presentation, Simon Payne, Chairman of the Federation said "The cheque symbolises the Warwickshire police officer's commitment to the creation of this vital memorial. Every officer believes strongly in a lasting legacy of remembrance, and one this country is in vital need of. I am calling on all police federations to dig deep and make the contribution necessary so that future generations can pay their respects to those police officers whose job of keeping the public safe ended in the loss of their own life."

Police and Crime Commissioner Phillip Seccombe said: "The memorial will be a fitting tribute to all of those who have given their lives in the line of duty. That officers locally have contributed so generously towards its creation speaks volumes about the dedication and sense of family that has long been the hallmark of Warwickshire Police." 

Chief Constable Martin Jelley also added that "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"
