National Police Remembrance and Blue Ribbon Day in Victoria

bg-box1

National Police Remembrance Day is a time for members of Victoria Police and the community to honour the dedicated men and women who have died serving their community.

In Victoria, the Blue Ribbon Foundation also holds Blue Ribbon Day on 29 September to coincide with National Police Remembrance Day.

The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation perpetuates the memory of members of the Victoria Police killed in the line of duty through the support of worthwhile community projects within Victoria.

In total, 159 Victoria Police members have been killed in the line of duty. Of these, 30 have been murdered, which underlines the dangers police members face on a daily basis.

We can do nothing to bring them back but as a grateful community we can take steps to honour their memory and ensure their sacrifice is acknowledged through a range of projects that benefit the wider community.

We invite all Victorians to pause for a few moments on Blue Ribbon Day to remember those members of our Police Force who have paid a price beyond measure for safety in our community. You may also like to attend one of the many memorial services being conducted or purchase a badge of remembrance from the selected retail outlets.
