Next Memorial

2020 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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the current and ongoing Covid-19 crisis, this year’s Memorial Service will be a closed service in order to adhere to the restrictions set out by the Ministry of Health. The current restrictions limits social gatherings, both indoor and outdoor, to 50 people. We want to ensure that we are following all guidelines outlined by the Provincial Health Officer and not unnecessarily expose our families or members during this uncertain time.

Please join us for a virtual service. We will have more detailed information closer to the date of the event.

This next Memorial Service will take place:
