Supporting Victoria Police this Blue Ribbon Day
Thursday 26 September, 2013
Parks Victoria is a proud supporter of Victoria Police and the Blue Ribbon Day – 27 September 2013.
Parks Victoria Chief Executive Bill Jackson said Parks Victoria rangers and staff work proudly alongside Victoria Police officers across the state to help to protect Victoria’s parks.
“We are extremely grateful for the work of Victoria Police and encourage everyone to support the Blue Ribbon Day,” said Dr Jackson. “Joint efforts to protect Victoria’s parks and the environment through compliance patrols, education programs and community projects are very much appreciated by Parks Victoria and the community.”
Dr Jackson said Blue Ribbon Day was a great opportunity to pause and reflect on the sacrifice that Victoria Police make for the community.
Victorians are invited to pause for a few moments on Blue Ribbon Day to remember those members of the Police Force who have paid a price beyond measure for safety in our community.
There are many memorial services being conducted around the state and badges of remembrance are available for sale from selected retail outlets.
