One by one, the names of Ontario’s fallen police officers rang out during the 17th annual Ceremony of Remembrance Sunday, May 1, 2016.

 

The 260 names were read by two recruits from the Ontario Police College’s recent graduating class.

 

Led by police pipe bands, the ceremony’s Procession of Honour, with officers from throughout Ontario, Europe and the United States, marched in the rain along Queen’s Park Crescent to the steps of the Legislature.

 

The Waterloo Regional Brass Band and Ontario Police Choruses performed at the event, where families and friends of the fallen officers joined dignitaries including Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell and Premier Kathleen Wynne.

 

The service is hosted annually on the first Sunday of May by the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation to ensure all Ontario’s fallen officers are remembered.

 

In honour of the officers, the CN Tower was lit blue overnight Saturday, April 30 to Sunday, May 1.
