Your views are helping us to remember the fallen
Our survey represented the views of over 200,000 people including police officers and staff, families of the fallen, the wider policing families and the general public. Respondents wished to see:
- The life stories of officers and staff lost.
- Photographs, oral histories, video tributes and associated press links and newspapers cuttings should be added to individual tributes.
- An ability to search by cause of death, region or specialist units amongst others.
- An online memorial that is fully accessible to those with disabilities.
It not too late to have your say and the Trust would welcome you feedback.
