On National Police Remembrance Day, 29 September 2020, we will remember the fallen police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.
 
To highlight the importance of this occasion, the WA Police Union has again arranged for several buildings and landmarks around the State to be illuminated blue in honour of our fallen brothers and sisters.
 
WAPU President Harry Arnott said the visual tribute was an important reminder of the service and sacrifice of our police officers and a fantastic way to remember them. 
 
“There is no day more important than when the community gathers to honour the sacrifice of the blue family. Our police officers put their lives on the line every day dealing with traumatic situations and violent crimes,” he said 
 
“It is important we remember those who never made it home.” 
 
WAPU hopes the sea of blue across the State on Tuesday night will help highlight the importance of this day.
