Service honours fallen officers
THIS is your thin blue line.
Being a police officer is not just a job, it’s a calling.
And the job of a North Burnett police officer is no different to those working in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.
They face the same risks because at any time, on any shift an officer can find themselves at the mercy of an offender.
But officers support each other forming an extended family.
Eight officers from across the North Burnett came together to remember those who gave their lives to protect and serve.
BRAVERY and sacrifice made in the line of duty must be remembered.
Officers are at the front line and Police Remembrance Day is a time to remind everyone of those dangers and what they cost the men and women behind the thin blue line.
“The Queensland Police Service acknowledges the contribution of all staff members who have died on this National Police Remembrance Day,” Senior Constable Cam Mosley said.
“In doing this we remember them and honour their diligent service.”
Pastor Fay Barton welcomed everyone to the Mundubbera Uniting Church on Monday where a service was held for police officers from across the North Burnett.
“There are few professions that require the act of laying down your life for another,” Pastor Barton said.
“The men and woman of the police force put their lives on the line for me, for us, and it is all in a day’s work, amazing,” she said.
“It’s not a job or a career, but a calling,” Peel said.
