Never, ever forget
News analysis by JOHN RYAN
POLICE cop a lot of flak but day in, night out, they’re putting themselves in the line of fire at domestic violence incidents and fights where they could cop a king-hit at any time, and that’s a constant level of stress that most people don’t have to carry around with them.
They’re attending all sorts of fatal accidents and other deaths, and that too can build up and cause mental health issues, as well as affect the way officers are able to interact with their families.
So it’s important to stage events like tomorrow’s National Police Remembrance Day service, which will be held within Dubbo’s Wesley Uniting Church at 11am.
If you’ve never been to one of these, why not take the time to get along, all citizens are invited to attend and that attendance will be appreciated – it’s important to show strong community support for the boys and girls in blue.
Morning tea will be served in the foyer from 10.30am.
Local Police Chaplain Ross Godfrey says the public is welcome to attend this year’s National Police Remembrance Day service at Wesley Uniting Church, 64-66 Church Street, Dubbo tomorrow (Friday, September 28) commencing at 11am.
