DOZENS took to the greens in Tamworth on Friday for the annual David Rixon Memorial Golf Day in memory of their fallen colleague.
Today, friends, family and Oxley police will gather for the seventh anniversary of the slain senior constable's death.
David Rixon was shot and killed while performing a routine traffic stop on the morning of March 2, 2012, in West Tamworth.
Former colleague of Senior Constable Rixon, Aaron Turner, said many in the force would also stop and pause to remember their fallen mate today.
"The golf day has become a tradition for local officers," he said.
"It's a chance to commemorate Dave and a chance to get together, away from work, to remember him, his work and the mate he was to many."
On Friday, about 60 police, friends, family and former officers teed off in the memorial golf day, in the theme of Australian legends.
There were Aussie cricketers, a few Steve Irwins, a Captain Cook and plenty of mullets and bogans.
It's the sixth memorial day and has become a fixture for local police, emergency services and his friends and family.
