Honouring our officers

IT'S a day to honour the fallen.

Saturday marks one of the most important days on police officers' calendars.

"We mark Remembrance Day to ensure that our colleagues, who have paid the ultimate price, are honoured," Gladstone Inspector Les Bulluss said.

National Police Remembrance Day has been held throughout Queensland since 1989 and is now a well-established tradition.

Police officers, police liaison officers and other staff members have been wearing blue ribbons this week, to honour the memory of officers who have died in the line of duty.

Ribbons are available at Gladstone Police Station free of charge, but donations are greatly accepted.

Money received from the donations goes towards Queensland Police Legacy and Community Supporting Police.
