The Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial Ribbon Society is dedicated to remembering all Police and Peace Officers in Canada who have died while serving their communities.

When an Officer dies “in the line of duty”, protecting the peace and freedoms of this country, his or her death should be honoured nationally and not forgotten.

The Society’s blue and black Memorial Ribbon has become recognized across Canada as the national symbol of mourning for Police and Peace Officers. The Society is working to establish the Ribbon as an international symbol of mourning for fallen heroes.

The purpose of the Society, through this website, is to raise funds through donations and the sale of related merchandise so that the Society can continue its mission of assisting grieving families, helping to establish memorials and monuments, and providing scholarships to the children of fallen Police and Peace Officers.

Monies raised will go towards the Memorial Ribbon Scholarship, which provides scholarships for the children of fallen Canadian peace officers, as well as memorials and monuments in fallen officers’ names.
