The Hon David Elliott MP, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, joined a longstanding NSW Police Legacy tradition by attending the Hills District Local Area Lunch on 27 June 2019.
NSW Police Legacy are delighted that Mr Elliott took the time to spend with Police Legatees who all have a long involvement with the NSW Police Force, and are active members of the Police Family. During the lunch, Mr Elliot spoke to each of the widows, getting to know their stories and the stories of their brave police husbands, now deceased.
Also in attendance at the Local Area Lunch was Sergeant Jenny Hilder, NSW Police Legacy Board Member and Hills District resident. Sgt Hilder is instrumental in organising the Lunches in her area, and often assists attendees who might otherwise struggle to come to these important social functions.
NSW Police Legacy runs Local Area Lunches throughout NSW, and they play an important role in keeping our Police Legatees socially connected, and connected to the wider Police Family. We deeply appreciate the fact that Mr Elliot recognised the importance of these events by attending our function.
About NSW Police Legacy
NSW Police Legacy was founded in 1987 to care for the widows, widowers, partners and dependent children of deceased NSW police officers. Today, we care for many members of the wider police family, including our police legatees, the parents of deceased police officers through the parents’ support network, special constables, serving and retired police and their families facing necessitous circumstances, and former police and their families as they transition from a career in policing to civilian life through BACKUP for Life. www.policelegacynsw.org.au
