Ely police station fell silent today at 11am as officers joined with colleagues across the UK in a minute’s silence to honour PC Andrew Harper.
He was the newly wed police officer from Oxfordshire who was killed whilst attending a burglary.
A spokesman for Ely Police wrote on Facebook: "This morning Sgt Mark Rabel and his team in East Cambridgeshire paused for a minutes silence to remember PC Andrew Harper who was tragically killed while responding to a burglary last Thursday."
A fundraising page set up by the Thames Valley Police Federation has so far raised more than £260,000 for PC Harper's family.
PC Harper's widow paid an eloquent and emotional tribute to him in the days after he was killed on 15 August 15.
