The Angela Taylor Memorial Run Walk was held on Sunday 28 April. It was so pleasing, that 30 years after this event first started that we had almost 1000 registered which is a record number of participants.  It is wonderful to see such strong support for our Police service. We have many community, police and emergency service individuals and teams including the SES, Ambulance Victoria, Australian Federal Police, Crimestoppers, the Police Association and CFA joining us.

All proceeds from the event will assist in funding a Critical Circulatory Support Service at Eastern Health’s Box Hill Hospital in honour of Victoria Police Officers who have died in the line of duty. This new service will be led by Eastern Health’s Cardiology and Intensive Care Unit teams. The funding will deliver equipment and establish a training centre to enable Eastern Health to provide artificial heart-lung support. This new service will save lives.
