Autumn Anzac MAIN Police Life 2015


The Autumn Police Life is out now.

This edition of Police Life highlights the Anzac Centenary and remembers the 138 police who served in World War I, 27 of whom lost their lives.

It also emphasises what police are doing to tackle alcohol-related crime, including an Australian-first program which aims to reduce alcohol dependence and associated destructive behaviours.

The Autumn Police Life puts a spotlight on:

  • Recently retired Chief Commissioner Ken Lay's 41-year career achievements.
  • The small country town of Cohuna, where a police officer was awarded for his excellent work in combatting the scourge of ice in his community.
  • The way police are identifying human trafficking and industries exploiting victims. 
  • How police and support services are helping victims of crime.
  • Preston Police Station.
  • The Transit Safety Division Response Unit's successful operations.
  • St Kilda Police Station's multicultural liaison officer, Timothy Lambourne.
