Connectivity / Authenticity / Respect / Empathy

In the line of duty, our police put their lives on the line for us every day. What often comes as a result is close to a lifetime of mental health issues; usually not evident until after their service is finished.

Police Veterans Victoria aims to change that. Police Veterans Victoria aims to ensure police veterans are recognised and supported in the same way as Defence veterans, noting that police veterans are, in a way, fighting in their own war to protect the community and make Victoria a safer place.

Veterans facing a change in career and a new identity can be as young as in their 30’s; and one horrific day at work can be career ending. It could happen three months after leaving the academy, or thirty years.

National Police Veterans Support

The issues our veterans face is not limited to Victoria. Service affects members from every law enforcement body across the country. Our goal is for the Police Veterans model to be setup in every state and be governed by a national Police Veterans body. Every member who has worked at least one day in the service should be entitled to support post their service. We will continue to lobby the Federal and State government to recognise Police Veterans in the same way our Defence Veterans are recognised and taken care of.
