Unveiled by the Queen.

Site: National Police Memorial (2 memorials)

SW1, Horse Guards Road, Cambridge Green

The story of this important memorial is given at the Police Memorial Trust. Behind the tower of glass, in the creeper-covered block a book of remembrance is displayed behind glass. This book "starts with an unknown constable killed in 1680. There are nearly 1,600 names recorded, of those officers unlawfully killed while in the execution of their duty, or in the course of effecting an arrest or the performance of acts of gallantry or other hazardous duty, taken from the 4,000 names on the National Police Officers Roll of Honour of officers who have died in the line of duty." The creeper conceals a large concrete London Underground vent shaft.
