Victoria Police Legacy Scheme (Inc)

Victoria Police Legacy


Victoria Police Legacy (VPL) supports Victoria Police families, serving or retired, who have lost a spouse, partner or parent. We currently have over 750 adults and 145 children and young adults as our legatees.

Established in 1980, VPL is a charity with the majority of our funds provided by regular contributions from Victoria Police members ranging from the newest recruit to the Chief Commissioner.

Support is provided to legatees through contact visits from our field officer, facilitating contact with relevant agencies and service providers and advocacy on a range of issues. Remaining connected and engaged with other legatees and the wider police family is encouraged through various social activities. A range of financial supports and educational grants are also provided. We have recently introduced a Youth Development Grant designed to assist young legatees in their personal development.

Attending our regular family camp or children's camp gives legatees, both children and parents, the opportunity to support each other, maintain and grow friendships and to welcome new legatees into a caring environment. At a time of extreme grief the support of other people who have experienced loss cannot be underestimated.

Our young adults aged 16 years - 22 years have regular gatherings and activities to support each other and again welcome new legatees into the group.

VPL has a board that is made up of serving police who volunteer their time to provide strong governance for the organisation. Our Chief Patron is the Governor of Victoria His Excellency The Hon Alex Chernov AC QC and our Patron is the Chief Commissioner of Police Ken Lay.
