    29 September ~ National Police Remembrance Day

    Remember fallen police this September

    Release date: Mon 24 September 2007
    Last updated: Wed 26 September 2007


    Victorians are urged to fly the blue and white colours this September as a mark of respect for Victoria Police officers killed in the line of duty.


    On 29 September, National Police Remembrance Day and Blue Ribbon Day honours the 150 Victoria Police members who have been killed while serving the community.


    The day is organised and promoted by a community-based council, the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation, which perpetuates the memory of the police officers who have died in the line of duty by giving financial support to worthwhile community projects within Victoria.


    Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation Chief Executive Neil Soullier urged Victorians to support Blue Ribbon Day and National Police Remembrance Day as a mark of respect for fallen police officers.
    “Blue Ribbon Day is a symbol of thanks from a grateful community for the police members who had made the ultimate sacrifice,” Mr Soullier said.


    “We are very proud of all Victoria Police members and the way they serve our community. It’s important that we never forget those police members whose lives are tragically cut short while protecting and serving us,” he said.


    This year more than one million ribbons and stickers in the blue and white checkered police colours will be distributed in Victoria. Members of the public can pick up their ribbons from a variety of outlets across Victoria including police stations, participating newsagents, RACV outlets and McDonald’s restaurants.
    Victorians can also make voluntary donations to the Blue Ribbon Day Appeal where the money raised is used to build new and improved emergency facilities in Victoria’s public hospitals.
    The support program in public hospitals has been a very successful outcome from Blue Ribbon Day and has also helped to establish 12 regional branches of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation in country areas.


    All hospital units funded by the Blue Ribbon Foundation are named in memory of police members who have been killed in the line of duty. Regional branches have also adopted names of fallen members to name units in their local hospitals. This has helped to generate even greater awareness for the work of the Blue Ribbon Foundation and greatly boosted the cooperative partnerships between regional communities and their police.

    Thoughts and prayers.
    I'm not ruining your life, you are, and I'm just going to write a short story about it.
