Police Legacy at home
WHILE the WA Police Legacy has been around since 1992, the organisation was proud to finally move into its first-ever home in South Perth.
Previously using buildings at the Police Headquarters and WA Police Union , WA Police Legacy settled in to the new residence on Canning Highway last month.
The WA Police Legacy formed over 20 years ago with its priority being to assist the welfare of police officers’ partners and families should they lose a loved one.
Today, the organisation continues to work to support the families and officers in times of financial hardships and by organising social activities and more.
Currently the WA Police Legacy supports 382 police widows, three police widowers and 47 children under the age of 18.
The new South Perth residence for the charitable organisation provides a place for officers and families to visit in times of need.
A number of police officers and WA Police Legacy members banded together to celebrate the opening of the organisations new home on October 15.
