Support for Dallas Law Enforcement

On July 7, 2016 five police officers were shot and killed in Dallas Texas. This is the second worst tragedy where so many officers died, with September 11th 2001 being the worst. Although the Ribbon is a Canadian Symbol we have worn it for our Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement in the USA. The last time was for 9/11. This tragedy affects all of us who wear the badge.

To show support for our Law Enforcement family in the United States of America, and more specifically Dallas Texas, we believe and encourage the wearing of the Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Ribbon to honour and remember the five officers in Dallas who were killed while performing their duties.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and officers in Dallas Texas.

Ribbon Becomes Official Canadian National Symbol for Honouring Fallen Heroes

Over the past year the Police & Peace Officers' Memorial Ribbon Society has been working on making the Ribbon the official Canadian national symbol for honouring and remembering our fallen heroes. The Society signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Canadian Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Inc. in December. With the MOU, we have changed the design of the badge to reflect this new status as an official national symbol by emblazoning it with a representation of the National Memorial Pavilion in Ottawa.

As we run out of our current stock of Memorial Ribbon products we will begin replacing them with products featuring the new design. As the Society is a not-for-profit charity, we chose to change the products after we run out of current stock so as not to waste monies already spent, and to ensure the money we do make goes towards the Society's objectives. In the past 20 years, the Ribbon has only changed three times, each time becoming more representative of Canada's entire Law Enforcement family.

In an effort to improve the look of the Ribbon, it now comes individually packaged in an effort to protect each one. Also, the ribbons are now fused so they don't curl when worn in inclement weather.

The Society itself has not changed in the way we do business, or for what the Ribbon symbolizes. We continue to raise funds through the sale of the Ribbon and other products as well as through donations. Funds raised goes towards our stated objectives, including the Memorial Ribbon Scholarships. Thank you for your patience as we go through these changes.
