Essex Police Memorial Day
Essex Police Memorial Day and Essex Police Benevolent Fund
On Saturday 1 June 2019 an event was held at Essex Police HQ to commemorate officers and support staff who have been killed on duty whilst serving Essex Police.
The occasion also marked the 30 year anniversary of two Essex Police divers, Steve Taylor and Andy Morrison, who sadly died having got into severe difficulties whilst on a training exercise in some gravel pits near Dobbs Weir, close to Nazing.
The Chairman and other NARPO Chelmsford Branch committee members attended the event. A collection was held in support of the Essex Police Benevolent Fund and the Chelmsford Branch contributed £100 as a token of remembrance together with suitable flowers. We feel sure members generosity will be much appreciated.
The Benevolent Fund provides relief from poverty, suffering, distress or general hardship by means of cash grants. It is available to retired Essex Police Officers, widows, widowers, civil partners, life partners and orphans. If you or you know of anyone, who needs benefit from the Fund and falls into these categories, then please contact our representative Graham Furnival by email Graham Furnival for further information or telephone Graham on +44(0) 780 165 7138. Alternatively, contact the Fund Secretary via Essex Police Federation or Welfare.
