NSW Police Legacy provides care and ongoing support to the families of police officers who have suffered a loss.
Our Board, staff, and volunteers strive to ensure that no partner or dependent child will ever feel forgotten or in need and will continue to feel connected to the police family. We also provide support for the parents of deceased officers, and support police officers to fundraise for police families facing necessitous circumstances.
Regardless of whether a police officer was serving or retired, or the circumstances of their death, we support family members left behind and ensure those who have protected the community will be remembered.
