Next Memorial

2023 BC Law Enforcement Memorial

The British Columbia Law Enforcement Memorial Service coincides with the National Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial held in Ottawa on the last Sunday in September. Effective in 2019, the BC Law Enforcement Memorial Service will no longer rotate between Victoria and the Lower Mainland. In consultation with our partner Law Enforcement agencies and the family members of our fallen officers it has been decided that the BC Law Enforcement Memorial Service will be held permanently in Victoria.

This next Memorial Service will take place:
