Blue Ribbon Day
On Blue Ribbon Day we remember police officers who have died in the line of duty and acknowledge the difficult and dangerous work of all Victoria Police members.
Blue Ribbon Day is 29 September, which coincides with National Police Remembrance Day.
Blue Ribbon Day is a chance for the community to say thank you to those who protect and serve our community and ensure that those who have fallen are never forgotten.
Blue Ribbon Day was launched in 1999, after the outpouring of community support for Senior Constable Rodney Miller and Sergeant Gary Silk who were tragically killed on 16 August 1998.
We remember lives by saving others. Building new and improved emergency facilities in Victorian hospitals that are then named in memory of fallen officers. Proceeds from Blue Ribbon Day help to fund these projects named in their honour.
