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.
