The Victoria Police Copperoos are gearing up to go head-to-head with ex-Socceroos stars at Lakeside Stadium this weekend as they battle it out for the annual Tony Clarke Memorial Shield.

The Blue Ribbon Foundation Tony Clarke Memorial Shield is a soccer match played in memory of Senior Constable Tony Clarke who was murdered whilst on duty in April 2005.

President of the Victoria Police Soccer Club Acting Superintendent Darren Cooper said the match was a fitting way to honor the memory of Tony Clarke, his family and all police members who have made the ultimate sacrifice performing their duty.

“Tony was a great man, a football enthusiast who loved the mighty Liverpool, a dedicated police member, a loving husband, father and a gentleman in every sense of the word.

“Commemorating his life each year through the Tony Clarke memorial game is also great chance for some quality social soccer – but it’s not going to be an easy game, given that the Socceroo team will be made up of household names such as Ned Zelic, Danny Tiato and Josip Skoko

‘My Story’ – a video of hardship and determination in the Normanton community

Queensland Police Service on Friday, 16/06/2017 08:15 AEST

Sergeant Cath Purcell on Jun 16, 2017 @ 8:04am

‘My Story’ saw a group of five community members share their story of hardship and determination to overcome their personal difficulties, as well as share their messages to empower and inspire others.

The ‘My Story’ project is part of a broader strategy for Mount Isa Police District to address attitudes and beliefs about the drug ICE. The project was requested by community members from the Normanton community, who wanted to share their story and their lessons with others.

In November 2016, a team of officers, Constable Tom Ayling, Senior Constable Phil Newton, and me, Sergeant Cath Purcell, pitched-in to record the footage and create a draft production. The team were selected for the task due to their previous achievements in proactive community projects, and the desire to make a difference for the lives of others.

Why would someone share their story about drugs and alcohol with police?

Asking people to open up to police and talk about drugs and alcohol and having them agree was always going to be a challenge, however those featured in ‘My Story’ wanted police to know about their experiences and how it affected them. The officers were honoured to be a special guest in their lives, and asked questions to help them tell their story.

What happened?

Those featured in the video were asked to tell their story and how drugs and/or alcohol impacted their life. Each of them were able to recall a turning point that caused them to turn to drugs and alcohol. They told their story about why they chose to quit, and gave a powerful and unique message to others to stay away from drug and alcohol dependence.

How can I help?

You can help by sharing their video on social media and talking with your community about it. Mount Isa Police and Normanton community encourage other individuals and communities to get involved in sharing their story. Please contact Mount Isa Police or leave a message if you or your community would like to get involved in the ‘My Story’ project.
