National Thank A Cop Day

19 September 2021

This week is Police Week, and today is National Thank A Cop Day – I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our current and past serving officers for the important work that they do in our community.

Tasmania Police work hard every day throughout the year to keep Tasmanians safe, and their bravery is to be commended, whether it is fighting crime, undertaking rescues or attending road emergencies.

Our police officers make many sacrifices, they are often called upon to selflessly put themselves in challenging situations, to be away from their families during important milestones, all for the sake of assisting and helping people that they do not know.

They are committed and dedicated to serve and protect our community.

The Tasmanian Liberal Government is a strong supporter of our police, with significant investments into supporting officers in rural and remote Tasmania, our Health and Wellbeing program, upgraded police housing, new and upgraded police stations, and we are recruiting an additional 308 police officers to take Tasmania Police to its highest ever establishment.

Please take a moment to show your appreciation to our police officers for their commitment to protect and serve – at all times of the day or night and in all conditions, they are there for us.
