“ASPS’s President Chief Superintendent Rob Hay and General Secretary Stewart Carle were privileged to attend the National Police Memorial Day, organised by the Police Remembrance Trust, at the New Theatre, Cardiff, on Sunday 24 September.  We were delighted to meet retiring ASPS member (and that’s definitely not ‘shy and retiring’!) Superintendent Pat Murphy, ‘G’ Division, who was chosen to carry the Police Scotland Standard in the service.  This was Pat’s last duty in uniform.  DCC Fiona Taylor represented the Police Service of Scotland, supported by members of the SPF, the Cabinet Secretary for Justice and Mr David Taylor, the son of late Constable George Taylor (Lanarkshire Constabulary and Strathclyde Police) who was murdered on duty near Carstairs in 1976.  David lit a candle on the alter in memory of the hundreds of police officers who have died on duty in Scotland: “We will remember them.  Semper Vigilo.”
