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.
make a difference.
Police Veterans Victoria was established with funds raised from the Head to Head fundraising walk in 2018. These funds were used to professionalise a volunteer organisation and advocate on behalf of all police veterans.
Funds are used to help directly improve the mental health of police veterans and their families.
We still need your financial support to keep the momentum going on this important cause.
