A Wall of Remembrance at the New Zealand Police Dog Training Centre at Trentham in Upper Hutt will ensure they aren't forgotten.

The wall will be unveiled on Wednesday by Deputy Commissioner Viv Rickard and former police dog handler and Associate Justice Minister Mark Mitchell.

Individual plaques display each dog's name, the date they were killed and their handler's name.

Ten of those handlers, seven of whom have since retired from the police, will attend the unveiling.
