Chief Police Officer for the ACT Rudi Lammers is urging the community to support the Men in Uniform stalls from 10am-2pm tomorrow (Saturday November 22) and donate to the White Ribbon Foundation by purchasing merchandise and swearing the oath.
Chief Police Officer for the ACT Rudi Lammers – a White Ribbon Ambassador – said that “supporting the efforts of the White Ribbon Foundation through the Men in Uniform partnership is an important community engagement, delivering a clear message that police will not tolerate family violence, and nor should the community.”
Alarmingly one in three women has experienced physical violence since the age of 15 and on average one woman is killed every week by a current or former partner in Australia.
The Men in Uniform stalls will be located at the five major shopping centres across Canberra including Westfield Woden and Belconnen, Tuggeranong Hyperdome, Canberra Centre and Gungahlin Marketplace, along with the three Bunnings’ stores in Belconnen, Fyshwick and Tuggeranong and the Dickson shops.
Last year’s Men in Uniform stalls raised more than $30 000 for the cause.
