Have you every taken a moment to give thanks and pray for the Police officers that serve you in your community?
Well in the run up to the National Day of Prayer for the Police the Christian Police Association has launched a UK wide prayer initiative called 'Pray4YourPolice' to help you to do just that.
The aim is to encourage individuals and churches to mobilise in prayer for their local police and for the communities they serve.
The initiative came out of a moment when retired Chief Inspector Paul Wilson felt God speak to him in a very powerful way.
Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton met up with Paul to find out more but first asked him about the importance of prayer during his almost 30 years police service in Birmingham, Brighton and London.
