The Peninsula Branch of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation was launched in May, 2011. It engages with communities from Frankston and along the Mornington Peninsula to remember members of Victoria Police who died in the line of duty. The focus of their work is to raise money to install ‘living memorials’ in both the Frankston & Rosebud hospitals. Projects funded by the branch are be named in memory of fallen officers.
Some of the projects already funded by the branch include the Edward Simmons Emergency Resuscitation Unit which was dedicated in December 2013 through a donation of $100,000 from the Peninsula Branch and the Blue Ribbon Foundation. In 2014 the Clyde Smith Emergency Resuscitation Unit will be dedicated at Rosebud Hospital thanks to a further donation of $50,000.
