The last Sunday in September of every year is Newfoundland and Labrador Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Day. The day is dedicated to the memory of police and peace officers who have died in the line of duty.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Association will host the 15th Annual Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony and Parade at the Memorial Monument Site outside the Confederation Building (East Block), in St. John's at 11 a.m. Sunday. If the weather is inclement, the ceremony will take place in the lobby of Confederation Building.

The public is encouraged to attend to honour the memory of those police and peace officers who made the ultimate sacrifice. Currently, the names of 20 officers are etched on the Provincial Memorial in St. John's. 

This ceremony and parade coincides with similar parades all across the country, perhaps the most notable of which will take place in Ottawa.

This year 32 current and retired members from the RNC Honour Guard will be representing the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary at the Memorial Service in Ottawa.
