Police and members of the community gathered to pay their respects for those who lost their lives in the line of duty at the Police Remembrance Day ceremony on Tuesday. Bunbury police officer-in-charge Sen. Sgt Andy Carson said the turnout was great to see for police officers who risked their lives to keep the community safe. “We want to acknowledge those officers and the families of those officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice over the last 150 years or so of policing in WA and paid with their lives,” Sen. Sgt Carson said. Sen. Sgt Carson said September 29 was a significant day for police officers around the world, and allowed people to pause to remember the sacrifices of others. “Every year we want to acknowledge those officers who have fallen and September 29 is the day that we stop to remember them,” he said. “It’s a nice way to remember them.” A ribbon was worn on the left breast in tribute of all fallen police officers. Services were also held at the Busselton and Collie stations. The WA Police Union arranged for the Koombana Bay footbridge to be illuminated blue on Tuesday evening to commemorate the event.
