Recognition Service for Constable Kate Campbell

This morning we were privileged to support a recognition service for Constable Kate Campbell the first policewoman for Tasmania Police in 1917. Kate was from Launceston but settled in Victoria after she left Tasmania Police.

The ceremony was conducted at St Arnaud cemetery. Tasmania Commissioner of Police Darren Hine and Acting Chief Commissioner Victoria Police Shane Patton were both in attendance.

In 2017, both states are celebrating 100 years of women in policing.
