"Police officers all over Thames Valley and the rest of the UK go to work each and every day to do their duty.
"We are courageous, caring and compassionate. We confront danger on a daily basis. We know there is a risk when we put on the uniform but we do so as we are proud to protect the public.
"Sadly on very rare and horrendous occasions a colleague makes the ultimate sacrifice. We will ensure that heroism is never forgotten. All our thoughts remain with Andrew’s wife, family, friends and close colleagues.
"The family of PC Harper will decide how money raised through the page is used."
