Blue blitz: Victoria turns blue with tributes to fallen police
Tributes to the four policed officers killed in a horror smash on the Eastern Freeway are pouring in.
Neil Mitchell urged Victorians to turn the state blue to honour the police killed, and you have answered the call!
Flinders Street Station, the NGV, Melbourne Town Hall, AAMI Park, Marvel Stadium, Arts Centre Melbourne, part of the Docklands, Victoria Police headquarters, Victoria Police Academy, the police memorial, 120 Collins St, 101 Collins St, O’Brien Icehouse, Crown Towers, the Salvation Army headquarters, and Aurora Towers are among the Melbourne sites that will turn blue in honor of the fallen tonight.
Lord Mayor Sally Capp said the tributes will allow the community to “show our admiration, our appreciation and our pride in the way the police protect us and really mark this incredibly devastating time”.
Residents have got involved too, putting blue ribbons, balloons and messages out the front of their houses to show their support for Victoria Police.
