Service for fallen police officers at St Carthage's Monday

NATIONAL Police Remembrance Day will be honoured at St Carthage's Cathedral in Lismore on Monday.

Everyone is invited to attend this special service, which starts at 10am.

The day is held in memory of police officers whose lives have ended while performing their duties.

It is also held to remember officers who have lost their lives through illness or other circumstances.

Diocesan Chancellor, former police officer and Richmond Local Area Command Chaplain, Reverend Chris Wallace, said Police Remembrance Day was an opportunity to gather together to remember all police officers who have died in the course of their work.

"Our special service at the cathedral is a time to support one another in our grief, remember the important job our police officers do every day, and thank them for their work," he said.

"In particular we remember three officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty this year: Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson VA from New South Wales, Constable Casey Blain from Queensland and Probationary Constable David Opa from Papua New Guinea."
