The Memorial Pin is the official pin of the Ontario Police Memorial.
The pin depicts a Trillium flower placed within a badge. A badge is the symbol, which represents the authority of all police officers, and the Trillium is the official flower of the Province of Ontario. Combined together they represent all Police Officers in Ontario.
The words “HEROES IN LIFE NOT DEATH” are on the Pin and on the Memorial’s main pedestal.
“HE WAS OUR HERO IN LIFE, NOT DEATH”.
Her words need nothing more said.
As fellow Police Officers, both active and retired, we ask and encourage you to wear your pin as a sign of support and respect for the families and our fallen comrades, during the following times:
On the day that a police officer is killed in the line of duty, until sundown on the day
During the Ontario Police Memorial Day, the first Sunday in May.
During the Canadian Police Peace Officer's Memorial Day on the last Sunday of September.
