Ontario Police Memorial

Preserving the memory of fallen officers

Police memorial statue The Ontario Police Memorial is dedicated to all of the brave police officers in Ontario's history who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The memorial is made up of a bronze statue of a male and female officer standing atop a large granite pedestal. The names of fallen officers are carved into a granite wall - the Wall of Honour - that stands on each side of the pedestal.

The words, "Heroes in Life, Not Death," are carved on the memorial. This is to recognize that police officers risk their lives, every day, to protect people and neighbourhoods, and deserve the respect and gratitude of the citizens they serve. The Ontario Police Memorial is in a small park at the corner of Queen's Park Crescent and Grosvenor Street in Toronto.

On the first Sunday of May each year police officers, families and friends gathered at the Ontario Police Memorial for the annual Ceremony of Remembrance to honour those that have paid the supreme sacrifice in the performance of their duty.

Below are the names of 40 Toronto police officers who paid life's highest price to fulfill the Service's motto "To Serve and Protect".
