Officers and staff from Durham Constabulary came together to attend a service of commemoration this morning to remember Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The service of prayer and reflection, was held held at the Memorial Garden at force headquarters to remember Her Majesty’s service and dedication to the country over more than 70 years.
The ceremony, led by senior chaplain the Reverend Adrian Gatrill, included readings from Chief Constable Jo Farrell, deputy lord lieutenant Gerard Salvin and Chief Superintendent Adrian Green, while officers and staff observed a two-minute silence in memory of Her Majesty.
On Saturday, Durham Constabulary will be represented at the service of reflection held at Durham Cathedral.A number of Durham officers have been deployed to London to support policing operations over the coming days and the force will be represented among the officers lining the route of Monday’s funeral.
A minute’s silence will be observed on Monday to allow those officers and staff who will be working during the funeral an opportunity to pay their respects.
Our deepest condolences are with the Royal Family.
