Victoria Police Legacy provides support and services to people in the police family who have lost a husband, wife or partner who is a serving or retired sworn member of Victoria Police. We also provide support and services to serving or retired sworn members who have lost husbands, wives or partners. Recently, support has been extended to a cohort aptly named Friends of Police Legacy which includes legatees who have moved into a new relationship, parents of serving members of Victoria Police, where that  member was not in a relationship at the time of their death and other people who have been deemed by the Board to have provided significant support to Victoria Police Legacy.

Victoria Police Legacy is a not-for-profit public benevolent institution that has Australian Taxation Office Deductible Gift Recipient status. Our income is mainly derived from the extremely generous financial support of the many thousands of sworn members of Victoria Police ranging from the newest recruit to the Chief Commissioner without whom much of the high quality support and services would not be possible. This is complemented by bequests, sponsorship, returns on investment and other donations.
