Police officers from across the province gathered in Regina on Sunday, September 24, to honour their fallen brothers and sisters.
"Officers generally go from the Estevan Police service every year and represent the Police Service at the memorial. That's something that takes place every year to honour and remember our fallen members so obviously it's an important day and we try to get out there every year."
He adds that it is important to remember the fallen members.
"Certainly a stark reminder of the dangers that are inherent in this line of work. We often hear that officers working in a smaller community are safer because there's not as much crime but when we look statistically at the number of officer fatalities they don't just occur in large centres, they occur in small towns, communities, there's no rhyme or reason."
"This job can be dangerous no matter where you are. It certainly can become quite dangerous at times."
National Police and Peace Officers Memorial day occurs on the last Sunday of September every year and also saw the second annual Ride to Remember, where peace officers rode their bikes from Prince Albert to Regina. It was established in 1998.
