This video represents a design concept approved by the trustees, but is not a final design.

The UK Police Memorial will be the first of its kind in the world to bring together the physical and digital into one powerful experience; using imagery, audio and video to pay tribute, honour, remember and educate.

It will bring to life the stories of those who have been killed on duty.
