WA Police Legacy Honour Roll

Honour Roll
The Honour Roll commemorates those members of the West Australian Police who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the execution of their duty. This WA Police Honour Roll records the name, rank, date and a précis of each death which has been accepted as duty-related by the various Commissioners of Police of the day. Unfortunately due to the nature of policing, this Honour Roll will never be complete. May they rest in peace – lest we forget - we will remember.
