Dedicated to the memory of Queensland Police officers who

______________________________
In World War 11, because Police officers were required to resign from the Queensland Police Force , it is unknown how many gave their lives in that conflict.

During World War 1, Police Officers were allowed to enlist but did not have to resign from the force to do so. Up to ten percent of the police force served in the armed forces between 1914 and 1918 with thirty officers losing their lives.
