Remembrance Sunday, which falls on November 11 this year, is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
Across Northamptonshire, commemorative services will be taking place with a two minutes’ silence at 11am.
Chief Superintendent Chris Hillery, said: “Police officers all across the country will be observing the two minutes’ silence alongside the public at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, and Northamptonshire Police is no different.
“As we all pause to remember those people who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage anyone attending a service this year to be on the lookout for suspicious behaviour.
“While the threat of terrorism is relatively low in this county, we are not complacent and it’s imperative that our communities work with us and our partners to report anything they think is suspicious. Communities really are the key to defeating terrorism.
“Don’t worry about wasting police time. No call or click will be ignored. What you tell the police is treated in the strictest confidence and is thoroughly researched by experienced officers before, and if, any police action is taken.”

Police officers are also sharing advice from Drone Safe to ensure drone owners are aware of their responsibilities:
- Don’t fly near airports or airfields
- Remember to stay below 400ft (120m)
- Observe your drone at all times – stay 150ft (50m) away from people and property
- Never fly near aircraft
- Enjoy responsibly
