Member for Macalister, Ms Melissa McMahon MP, today joined Assistant Commissioner Brian Swan in Beenleigh for a service to honour fallen police for National Police Remembrance Day.

September 29 is a significant date in the policing calendar to pause, honour, remember and thank police officers whose lives have been lost in the line of duty.

Assistant Commissioner Swan said the officers acknowledged each year made a profound sacrifice to keep the community safe.

“Together, we commit to honouring the fallen by dedicating ourselves to serving our communities and keeping them safe,” Assistant Commissioner Swan said.

“Each year I have the same wish, just as you all, that no further names are added to the Police Remembrance Honour Roll.

“The Logan community has provided us with tremendous support in hosting this service and bringing us together to commemorate the lives of all officers lost too soon.

“With Honour They Served.

Ms McMahon said the day was an important one to share.

“National Police Remembrance Day was an important day for our communities, where the community can pause and reflect upon the sacrifices made by police,” Ms McMahon said.

“It is so important to share these rituals of remembrance with our young people, so they may continue the traditions long after we are gone.

“I am honoured to have the opportunity to be here today with you all and pay our tribute to the work, courage, commitment and ultimate sacrifice of the fallen officers.”
