Herts Police has joined colleagues across the UK to pay tribute to officers killed during yesterday’s attack on the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Gunmen shot dead 12 people, most of whom were journalists, along with two police officers in the barbaric shooting on Wednesday.
A third officer - a policewoman - was killed south of Paris today, but it is not clear whether there is a link with yesterday’s massacre.
Officers in the county held a minute silence at 11am, at the memorial garden at police headquarters in Welwyn.
Chief Constable Andy Bliss said: “Herts Constabulary along with other forces across the country has staged a moment of silence today to remember those who have been killed as a result of the terrible events at Charlie Hebdo.
