Great memorial, set perfectly on the banks of the lake. A good place to sit back and reflect about everything that the men and women in the police force do for us.

A very sad and fitting memorial to the sacrifice made by the police in protecting us. Near the Lake walk and a must do visit.

This is a fitting tribute to those who have given their lives to uphold our laws. It's a lovely setting on a rise above the lake and there's a nice screen of mature trees between the memorial and Parkes Way. The design is visually appealing...More
