The Police Roll of Honour Trust is the only official source of the United Kingdom's National Police Roll of Honour. The charity researches and maintains the National Police Roll of Honour for the entire United Kingdom, it contains both historical and contemporaneous records of all those police officers who have lost their lives both on and in the line of duty.
Following the terrible events at Westminster today the Board of Trustees of the Police Roll of Honour Trust wish to offer their heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the Metropolitan Police officer who was fatally stabbed in the terror attack at Parliament.
The officer was aware of the unfolding events yet still went forward to stop the terrorist, the officer prevented that happening, but paid the ultimate price.
Not only was the officer defending the public, Parliamentary staff and MPs, he was quite literally defending the heart of our Democracy and the values and freedoms it represents.
Our thoughts are also with the innocent members of the public who were involved as well as all those who have also lost their lives.
Yet again a British Police Officer has performed their duty, they are a shining example of the courage and dedication displayed all over the United Kingdom by our Police officers. Tragically doing their duty has seen them pay the ultimate price; society owes them a debt we can never repay. In due course another name will be added to the United Kingdom's Police Roll of Honour, where they will be forever remembered.
