Press Release: Ontario Police Memorial Foundation Ceremony of Remembrance

Ontario Police Memorial Park

Broadcast time: 10amET (Reading of Names, March In, Pre-Show with Ceremony starting at 11amET)

Media is invited to attend the 25th Annual Ceremony of Remembrance, organized by the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation, on Sunday May 5th, 2024, at 11 a.m. at the Ontario Police Memorial in Toronto.

The annual Ceremony of Remembrance honours and pays tribute to Ontario’s fallen police officers who died in the Line of Duty – these officers are Heroes in Life, Not Death.

Led by Police Pipe Bands, thousands of uniformed police officers from across Ontario, Canada, the USA, and Europe will assemble in their march along Queen’s Park Crescent,
arriving at the wall of honour before 11 a.m. for the official start of the annual Ceremony of Remembrance.

In 2024, the following names of Ontario police officers will be added to the Ontario Police Memorial:

• Sgt. Eric Mueller, Russell County OPP (2023)
• Det. Cst. Steven Tourangeau, Perth County OPP (2023)

Historical additions:
• Cst Chief Edward Lavery, Prescott Police (1928)
• Det. Sgt. Thomas A Whitelaw, Metro. Toronto (1938)

Weather permitting, at approximately 12 p.m., 3 police helicopters from York Regional Police, Durham Regional Police and O.P.P. will do a low fly past and will fly the “missing man” formation in honour of the fallen over the memorial site.

For officers and members of the public who are not able to attend in person, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the official OPMF YouTube channel, Facebook, X and LinkedIn platforms.

Social media links to the service and additional details will be posted on the official blog of the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation. CeremonyofRemembrance.ca/Live.
