Canada’s fallen police and peace officers are being recognized across the country Sunday.
In Regina, Saskatchewan’s officers will be honoured with a memorial.
It begins at 10:30 a.m. with a parade starting at College Avenue and Albert Street, and will finish with a wreath laying at the legislative building at 11 a.m.
To pay respect to those who lost their lives in the line of duty, all government buildings throughout Canada — including the Peace Tower in Ottawa — will fly flags at half-mast from sunrise to sunset.
Police and Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day began nationally in 1998.
It was created as an opportunity to formally express appreciation for the dedication of Canadian police and peace officers, who made the ultimate tragic sacrifice to keep communities safe.
