Blue Ribbon Day 2020

Posted by: Blue Ribbon Foundation

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.

This year it means more than ever. 2020 has been a difficult year and it has been especially challenging for Victoria Police, tragically losing four members in April and now supporting our efforts in the fight against COVID-19.

We hope you will support our campaign to remember the 170 Victoria Police Officers who have died in the line of duty and say thank you to all Victoria Police officers for their work in serving & protecting our community.
