The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation perpetuates the memory of members of the Victoria Police who have died in the line of duty through the support of worthwhile community projects within Victoria.
In total, 166 Victoria Police members have died in the line of duty. Of these, 30 have been murdered, which underlines the dangers police members face on a daily basis.
The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation was incorporated in 1998 after several committees, all working to memorialise members of the Victoria Police killed in the line of duty, combined to form one organisation.
The Foundation has volunteer business units that manage and implement all of our fundraising events plus there are 17 regional branches in country Victoria that provide focus and fundraising in their local communities under the Blue Ribbon Foundation’s mission statement.
We do NOT use third-party commercial fundraisers to solicit donations or to source and market our merchandise. We research, design and source our own products from trusted suppliers, mostly in Australia and some overseas.
