Officers and staff from Nottinghamshire Police stood in silent tribute as they remembered those who have died in the service of their country.
During a ceremony today (Friday) at Joint Headquarters at Sherwood Lodge, senior officers were joined by civic dignitaries, the Police and Crime Commissioner, and members of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service at the site's war memorial.
After a minute's silence at 11am, a short service of Remembrance was concluded with a reading by Chief Constable Kate Meynell of John McCrae's renowned poem In Flanders Fields.
Representatives from Nottinghamshire Police will also be in attendance at a range of events across the county on Remembrance Sunday.
Chief Constable Kate Meynell said:
"This is an important time for us to pay our respects and remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country.
"We must all continue to do everything we can to support the many current and former military personnel who live and work in Nottinghamshire.
"I am proud that our force has made great strides in recent years to improve our outreach to this community through our Armed Forces Network, and we are also fortunate to call many former veterans colleagues.”
Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry said:
“It was incredibly moving to attend this morning’s memorial service to remember the ultimate sacrifice our men and women made to protect this country.
“We must never forget their bravery, and the bravery of all of our men and women in uniform who keep us safe each and every day.”
Remembrance Sunday is the Sunday nearest to 11 November, which marks the end of hostilities in the First World War on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
Remembrance Poppies, inspired by the landscape of the Western Front, were first sold by the Royal British Legion in 1921 to raise funds for ex-servicemen.
