A minute’s silence will be observed at 3.25pm – the time of the call to the travel agents in Morley Street, where PC Beshenivsky was shot and fatally wounded attending a robbery.

Flowers will be laid at PC Beshenivsky’s memorial where the Lord Mayor will lay flowers on behalf of the district.

The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Coun Joanne Dodds, said: “The selflessness and dedication to duty that Sharon showed that day, is mirrored by Officers and Police Community Support Officers in the way they safeguard the public and uphold the rule of law every day. Sharon made the ultimate sacrifice and gave her life protecting us and ensuring we could continue to enjoy the liberty, freedom and way of life we all value so dearly. The people of the Bradford district keenly appreciate and respect our serving police officers and the risks they face daily in carrying out their duties.”

Members of the public are welcome to attend the event and pay their respects.

Share the joy
