Bromley Police Cadets protect local war memorials as part of In Memoriam 2014

Published Monday, 6 November 2017

In the build up to Remembrance Sunday, Police Cadets in Bromley are visiting their local war memorials in support of In Memoriam 2014.

The initiative aims to protect local war memorials from metal theft and deter anyone considering vandalism or theft. Teaming up with War Memorials Trust and the SmartWater Foundation, the Bromley Police Cadets have been given SmartWater Forensic Marking Solution to discourage criminals from removing metal on war memorials.

Earlier this year, War Memorials Trust and the SmartWater Foundation were approached by Bromley Police Cadet Hollie Osborn who wanted to protect her local war memorials. Hollie carried out condition surveys using War Memorials Online and also identified which war memorials could benefit from being protected. Read more about the initiative.
