We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth today (Thursday, September 8th).
On hearing of Her Majesty’s passing, Chief Constable Chris Rowley said: “It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth today. There is a sombre mood across the force and on behalf of everyone at Lancashire Constabulary, I send our deepest condolences to The Royal Family at this very sad time.
"As Crown Servants, it is a particularly poignant moment for the policing family. We will remember her as a guiding light and source of inspiration during her long reign of 70 years, particularly during times of uncertainty.
“Flags at Lancashire Police’s premises will now be flown at half-mast to mark the national period of mourning.
“We are now preparing to support our communities over the coming days as we come together to remember Her Majesty and mark this historic moment in time."
A book of condolence is available for anyone who would like to pass on their messages to the Royal Family. You can sign it here https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/queen/
