Press Release – 2023 Ontario Police Memorial Foundation Ceremony of Remembrance

Media is invited to attend the 24th Annual Ceremony of Remembrance, organized by the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation, on Sunday May 7th, 2023, 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 2023, the following names of Ontario police officers will be added to the Ontario Police Memorial:
• Constable Andrew Hong, Toronto Police Service (2022)
• Constable Devon Northrup, South Simcoe Police Service (2022)
• Constable Morgan Russell, South Simcoe Police Service (2022)
• Cst. Grzegorz Pierzchala, Ontario Provincial Police Haldimand County Detachment (2022)

There is one historical addition to the Wall of Honour who was identified by the Ontario Police Memorial Historian after research submissions by the Durham Regional Police Service.
• Constable Vicki Lynn Wilson, Durham Regional Police Service (1992)

Guests of honour will include: Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, the Premier of Ontario, The Honourable Doug Ford, and families of fallen officers.

For members of the public who are not able to attend in person, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the official Ontario Police Memorial Foundation YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter platforms. The livestream will begin at 10am with the Reading of the Names of all fallen officers on the Memorial Wall. Links to the livestream on all platforms will be posted on the official blog of the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation
