Remembrance Day

Candles alight in church for memorial service.

On 29 September each year a Remembrance Day Service is held for serving and former Police staff who died during the previous twelve months. This date is the feast day of the Archangel Michael, patron saint of police.

Police officers killed by criminal acts while performing their official duties are remembered in the Roll of Honour read out at each Service. Their service and commitment to the New Zealand Police is remembered and honoured.

Remembrance Day 2021

Police Remembrance Day 2021 was a Remembrance Day like no other, with COVID-19 alert level requirements reducing our ability to gather at events.

We marked the day with a national commemoration rather than a national service. This took the form of a video and book. Both contain the Roll of Honour (honouring our police officers slain on duty), those who have died as a result of their police duties (including Australian and Pacific police officers who died as a result of their duties in the past year), and the names of serving and former police staff who died in the past year.
