Respect the Badge
Blue Light Victoria and Victoria Police are proud to present the Respect the Badge Award to Primary School communities across metropolitan and rural Victoria. The monthly award aims to acknowledge and promote positive values and behaviours in our young people.
The Value proposition that lies beneath ‘respect the badge and respect the people behind the badge’ is one of institutional care and respect, including self-respect. As members of our community we all wear badges, whether it is associated with our work, school, sport or socially and it is taking pride and respecting the badge that we and others wear. It strengthens our communities.
Primary Schools (government and non-government) across metropolitan and rural Victoria have the opportunity to participate in the Award program.
Once a school is accepted, each month teachers will nominate two students, one from junior grades and one from the senior grades to receive the award based on a set of criteria.
Once nominations are submitted a date and time will be organised for a Police Member to visit the school and present the Medal to the recipients (preferably at school assembly with parents in attendance). This also provides an excellent opportunity for the Police Member/s to engage with the children, the teachers and parents who may be present.
Is your school interested?
If you are a school located across Victoria you are eligible to participate in this program. Please feel free to contact us.
Our organisation is aiming to offer this program to all Primary schools across Victoria. Your generous donation, no matter how small will have an impact. $10 will mean that one more child will get an award. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Thank you.
