THE Queensland Police Service has unveiled two new special Anzac Day commemorative patrol cars in honour of those killed during World War One.

The vehicles are based in Brisbane and at Townsville and will be shown-off at a number of events, including in official Anzac Day marches and on National Police Remembrance Day.

Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Mike Keating launched the Brisbane vehicle at the Nundah Anzac memorial yesterday.

Assistant Commissioner Keating said the vehicles were a small token to remember the biggest sacrifice an officer could make.

“The Anzac centenary is a fitting time to remember the 30 officers from the Queensland Police Service who were killed in action or died of wounds or illness during the First World War,” he said.

“The Queensland Police Service stands with the rest of the community in remembering the Australians who are serving, have served, and those who have died, in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations involving our armed forces.

“Queensland police and volunteers from the State Emergency Service will continue a long and proud tradition of supporting our servicemen and women, and our local communities, during Anzac Day commemorations throughout the state.”
