Help honour police like PC Keith Palmer who gave their lives for us all
Nicola and Fiona’s names will be among 1,400 officers and police staff who laid down their lives inscribed on to the 50ft high monument that will be built within a dedicated remembrance garden. It will become a place of reflection and complement other sites around the country, notably the National Police Memorial in The Mall in London.
Bryn, 52, said: “To run towards somebody with a knife or a gun who is trying to hurt people, that’s doing more than just a job, it’s brave, in every sense.
“Even the more mundane stuff, like being stood at crime scenes for three or four hours at a time in the pouring rain and cold, takes a special kind of person to go back every day and deal with some of the things that Nicola and Fiona dealt with, and no doubt Keith did.
“We’ve got the option of turning the TV over, we’ve got the option to walk or run from danger, they haven’t. Nicola and Fiona were not what I would call big ‘roughty toughty’ types but they did an extraordinary job and are exactly the kind of people policing our streets every day.”
