The memorial recognises the ultimate sacrifice paid by members and gathers inspiration from various avenues of policing.  It replaces the original memorial which was located in George Street. 

The archways for each monument represent the police ribbon in honour of our fallen police officers.

There are ten pillars to support the five monuments. Each pillar represents a rank within the police service, from Constable to Commissioner. The ranks are: -
1. Constable
2. Senior Constable
3. Sergeant
4.Senior Sergeant 
5.Inspector
6. Superintendent 
7. Chief Superintendent 
8. Assistant Commissioner
9. Deputy Commissioner
10. Commissioner

The layout of the pillars in relation to a light source creates a chequered shadow effect, representing the police service's iconic blue and white chequered band.  The members' plaques have been placed randomly on the memorial - each officer honoured here paid the ultimate price, irrespective of rank or time served on the service.
