The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: Prince Charles unveils new police memorial alongside Boris Johnson” – below is their description.
The Prince of Wales will lead the nation during a dedication ceremony for the new UK Police Memorial honouring all fallen officers and staff.
Charles will unveil a plaque dedicating the monument in Staffordshire, and after giving a brief speech will lay the first wreath at the memorial commemorating the courage and sacrifice of all those from across the police service.
The UK Police Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas commemorates all personnel who have lost their lives since the formation of the Bow Street Runners in 1749.
Since that time, almost 5,000 police officers and staff have died on duty, 1,500 from acts of violence.
The dedication ceremony will be attended by up to 400 guests from across the policing family, including chief officers, bereaved relatives and policing charities, together with UK Government and devolved administration representatives, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
