National Police Day 2018

January 25, 2018 in Egypt

National Police Day takes place on January 25, 2018. National Police Day is a national holiday in Egypt that occurs each year. The holiday commemorates and is a remembrance for 50 police officers killed and more wounded when they refused British demands to hand over weapons and evacuate the Ismaïlia Police Station on 25 January 1952. The British Army surrounded the police station, then brought tanks in and took over the station. The event was photographed by a local man and photos were published, inciting anger and riots throughout Egypt. January 25 was declared as an official holiday in 2009 by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to recognize the efforts of Egyptian police to maintain security and stability in Egypt and acknowledge their sacrifices.
