A service is to be held this morning in memory of policewoman Fiona Bone, who grew up in Port St Mary, and colleague Nicola Hughes.
The constables were killed a year ago today while they investigated a suspected burglary in Hattersley, Greater Manchester.
The service will take place at Hyde police station and the force will hold a minute’s silence at 10:53am, the time when the officers were killed.
Fiona’s family, who live in Port St Mary, have this week placed an in memoriam notice in the Isle of Man Examiner.
It reads: ‘One year on the pain remains. We miss your smile, we miss your laugh, we miss your voice, we all miss you.
‘You live on in our hearts. You will never be forgotten.
‘Love Mum, Dad, Vicky, Mark, Clare and Jessie.’
Dale Cregan, aged 30, was given a whole-life sentence in June for the murders.
Family, friends and colleagues of the PCs will be attending the service.
Greater Manchester Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy, said: ‘The last 12 months have been a difficult time for the force, but it is testament to the professionalism and dedication of our officers and staff, who since that day have continued to go out and serve the public to the very best of their ability.
‘“We think of the families of Fiona and Nicola, of their friends and colleagues and the people of Hattersley. We remember our two young officers, who had their whole lives ahead of them but were taken cruelly from us doing the job they loved. We will never forget their great sacrifice.’
Fiona was educated at Castle Rushen High School in Castletown.
