Remember the great things that they have done, the sacrifices they’ve made and the love and patriotism they have for our beloved country.
This was the message from Home Affairs Minister Pio Tikoduadua while officiating at the 2023 Police Remembrance Day event at the Police Mobile Force headquarters in Eight Miles, Nasinu, yesterday.
“In the uniformed services of our nation, including the police, we’ll remember them for their sacrifice, for their dedication to duty, for the values that they upheld, for keeping our nation and our people safe, and in turn, keeping our region an our world safe,” Mr Tikoduadua said.
“So, as we celebrate this occasion, we hope that we will always keep a special place for them in our hearts and in the heart of our nation so that the efforts, the dedication, and their sacrifices will not go unremembered.
“That we’ll keep them at the center stage of our work so that we will always look up to the standards that they have left us. Conditions to emulate, examples to follow that at the end, we will always stand true to the uniforms that we don, to the responsibilities that we carry.
“Not for us, not only for our nation and our people, but in particular, our families and our children.”
The celebration was held throughout the four divisions where they commemorated the lives of officers who had fallen in the line of service.
