(4)        remembers the ultimate sacrifice that has been made by police officers who have been killed in the course of their duty, and honours their lives;

(5)        commends the good work of Police Legacy, who look after the loved ones of police who have died as a result of their duties; and

(6)        reaffirms our support for the nation’s 56,000 police officers, and honours their efforts to make a difference, defend our way of life and safeguard the peace and security of our communities.
