Cambridgeshire Police Federation chair Liz Groom has said this year’s Care of Police Survivors (COPS) Service of Remembrance made the support it offers survivors even more valuable after last year’s event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A new edition of the Quick Reference Guide (QRG) to terms and conditions of service has been published by the Police Federation of England and Wales.

A memorial dedicated to police officers who have lost their lives while on duty has been unveiled at a ceremony attended by HRH The Prince of Wales and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Almost 500 assaults against Cambridgeshire police officers were recorded last year, according to the latest figures.

A permanent memorial to the UK’s fallen police officers and staff will be unveiled during a special ceremony at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire today (Wednesday 28 July).
