National Police Remembrance Day is this Thursday.
It’s an important and solemn day for us to remember the 175 police officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving with Victoria Police.
This year, PVV is honoured to have been invited to lay a wreath on behalf of all veterans. We would love to see as many of you as possible to attend the formal service, to be followed by a social gathering hosted by PVV at Chloe’s Bar, Y & J Hotel.
We’d like to remind our veterans that they are not required to march, should they wish not to. Simply attending the service holds great significance on the day.
