On Friday 23 August 2019, Nottinghamshire Police joined police forces across the country in observing a minute’s silence in remembrance of PC Harper.
Officers, staff and volunteers met by Ged Walker’s and Chris McDonald’s memorials at Force Headquarters and the force flag was lowered.
We joined other forces around the country in memory of the Thames Valley Police officer who was killed last week whilst responding to a report of a burglary in Berkshire.
Nottinghamshire Police’s Chief Constable, Craig Guildford, said: “We all at Nottinghamshire Police would like to pass on our sympathies to everyone at Thames Valley Police following this tragic event, including PC Harper’s friends, family and colleagues.
“When these tragic incident do happen, they are a very sobering reminder of the dangers our country’s officers can face on a day-to-day basis in the important work that they do in helping to keep our communities safe.”
