The show of support for frontline healthcare workers around the world continues to grow – and tonight Victoria Police joined in on the salute.
VicPD patrol officers began their night shift at 7:00 p.m. Thursday evening by attending the Royal Jubilee hospital – not for a call, but to acknowledge the ongoing work of hospital staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A full watch of officers circled the hospital in their police cruisers, with flashing lights activated.
Outside of the Emergency Room bay, the officers got out of their vehicles and took a moment to clap and celebrate the work of hospital staff and healthcare workers, all during these very challenging times.
“Tonight, our Patrol officers took a moment to thank hospital staff, to acknowledge them for everything they are doing during this pandemic, and to let them know that we appreciate their commitment,” said Chief Del Manak.
“As first responders, we recognize their incredible work on the front lines of this public health crisis.”
VicPD say they appreciate the effort of all frontline healthcare staff who show up every day to help fight the good fight against coronavirus.
