How you can get involved
Throughout the year, SA Police Legacy hosts a number of social events providing an opportunity to bring together all the Police Legatees. These events are tailored for the separate needs of both adults and children. Judging by attendances, these are always a great success and provide a lot of fun in a safe and supporting environment amongst people with shared experiences.
Members of the public and serving Police Officers Australia-wide show their support for the memory of deceased Police Officers by wearing a ribbon on National Police Remembrance Day which is held on 29 September each year.
We supply (for a gold coin donation) the ribbons in memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. All monies raised support the families that are left behind. Ribbons are available through most local police stations and Police Credit Union branches.
The Wall to Wall: Ride for Remembrance is a national motorcycle promotion through the Police Federation of Australia and the National Police Memorial with all funds raised directly used to support Police Legacy organisations and charities.
The ride is open to serving and retired members, their families, friends and supporters. It is a wonderful commemoration of service and sacrifice, a celebration of the extended police family and a fantastic social event for enthusiastic motorcyclists across Australia.
Each year, we host a number of well attended social events providing the opportunity for all Police Legatees (adults and children) to come together in a social and supportive environment.
Self-funded holidays are organised for those wishing to take an interstate or overseas holiday with police family members. Police Legacy Group Travel provides confidence that all arrangements are organised and managed on your behalf.
Over 100 Police Legatees attend our annual Christmas Luncheon.
SA Police Legacy is committed to the remembrance of all SAPOL Officers who have died whilst serving the community of South Australia. On National Police Remembrance Day, 29 September each year, a wreath is laid at the memorial service held at the Police Academy, Fort Largs. Leading up to this day, we promote wearing a Remembrance Day Ribbon to commemorate these brave men and women.
Police Legacy has dedicated benches as a place for reflection in honour of all police officers who have died.
On 27 July 2016, Senior Police Chaplain Tim Sherwell performed a ‘reflection bench’ dedication ceremony at Bonython Park. “We dedicate this seat, this site as a place of memory and reflection in honour of all police officers who have died, regardless of the circumstance of their death. This site will be a place that helps us manage our grief, stirs our memories and honours those whom we have lost. This site will be a place that arouses the connection we still feel in our heart, encourages us in hope and kindles the love and the deep humanity we feel in these unique circumstances.”
WE REMEMBER THEM.
