The Police Roll of Honour Trust is the only official source of the United Kingdom’s Police Roll of Honour. The Roll contains both historical and contemporaneous records of all those police officers who have lost their lives both on and in the line of duty, from the murder on 28th January 1547 of Constable Richard Clynton, the earliest recorded death, to the passing of PC Kevin Flint on 15th January 2019.
Founded in March 2000 and now incorporated by Royal Charter, the Trust maintains a database which can be accessed online, and supports ongoing research to ensure accuracy and relevance. It assists in the provision of, and maintenance of memorials including statues, memorial gardens, books of remembrance, plaques and other appropriate memorials be they national, local, group or individual.
UK POLICE ROLL OF REMEMBRANCE is the first time the information held on the National Police Roll of Honour has been published in book form. Displayed in chronological order, with indexes by both Police Force and surname of the fallen, the book includes selected milestones in policing history, setting the deaths in a historical context, and expanded profiles of more than 50 officers.
The book, with a Foreword by Cressida Dick, CBE, QPM, Commissioner of the Metropolis, will be of interest to families of fallen officers, police historians, researchers and students.
Royalties will be used to continue the Police Roll of Honour Trust's important work.
