Our Ambassadors

Our Ambassadors are members or former members of Victoria Police, who champion Victoria Police Legacy in order to increase awareness across Victoria Police and the wider community. Our Ambassadors attend social events and engage and connect with our police legatees in various ways including hosting local lunches, delivering Christmas hampers, organising fundraising activities and joining in on our outdoor hiking events. We greatly appreciate the support of all of our Ambassadors.

Sandra Gaffee

Sandra Gaffe joined Victoria Police officially just over 10 years ago, and is currently situated at the Bendigo Police Station as an Administration Officer for Uniform Section. 
"One of my greatest achievements is coordinating and managing the Central Victoria Police Remembrance Day Service, which I have great pride in and have also witnessed the impact of Victoria Police Legacy on those left behind.  I saw the Ambassador role as a way to continue to support the police legatees (and of course enjoy some great lunches with police legatees) and promote and encourage the wonderful work that Police Legacy does for our members and their families."

Sergeant Sashi Vagadia

Sergeant Sashi Vagadia is at Transit Central and is passionate about raising awareness of Victoria Police Legacy.
While going through training at the academy, Sashi, along with members of Squad 31 of 16-17, helped launch the Police Legacy Baton Challenge. This was to raise funds for Victoria Police Legacy and, just as importantly, to engage with recruits at the Academy at the start of their career with Victoria Police.
"It's a great honour to serve as an Ambassador for Victoria Police Legacy. I'm looking forward to working closely with the Victoria Police Legacy team into the future"
