Rain wasn’t going to stop the nearly two-dozen officers who began their first leg of their journey in the Saskatchewan Ride to Remember.
25 officers from Saskatchewan are bringing awareness to the Saskatchewan Police and Peace Officer Memorial, which is always held the last Sunday in September.
The officers will be on Highway 11 on a Rider game day – which is Saturday – so it’s expected there will be a fair amount of traffic.
The Honour Roll has 71 names on it and nationally there are over 860 names on the Police Memorial Wall in Ottawa.
Members of the Regina Police Service will join with fellow police and peace officers in Regina on Sunday for the 12th Annual Police and Peace Officers Memorial.
This annual event recognizes and pays tribute to all police and peace officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
It coincides with other, similar ceremonies held across Canada, the largest of which is in Ottawa on Parliament Hill.
The Saskatchewan Police and Peace Officers Memorial event begins with a Parade of Officers Sunday beginning at 10:30 a.m. from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum at College Avenue and Albert Street in Regina.
The parade will proceed south on Albert Street to the Saskatchewan Legislature for a wreath ceremony at 11:00 a.m.
