About the memorial: Black polished Indian granite plinth and base, topped by a red polished Indian granite carved poppy with a solid black granite centre. One face of the plinth is etched with the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary crest; another is etched with the names of those from all of Devon & Cornwall Police's historic Forces who died during World War 1. N.B. the date "1918" at the top of the names panel does not denote that all 34 casualties actually died in that year; it is instead symbolic of the year of the Armistice. (Some of those commemorated on this obelisk were also named on the memorials erected soon after the War by the individual Police Force in which they had formerly worked- in the Garden of Remembrance.
