The Police Day is celebrated every year on the 25th of January to commemorate Ismailia battle on the same day in 1952 when the British occupiers killed 50 policemen and left 80 others wounded because the policemen refused to hand over their weapons and evacuate the governorate building to the British occupiers.
On this day, the State is keen on honoring the policemen who protect the homeland security and defend Egypt against terrorism. President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi is keen on honoring the families of the police martyrs who were killed while performing their national duty and putting a wreath of flowers on the memorial of the police martyrs.
