We are pleased to advise that the Reflection Chairs have been unveiled in Alice Springs and Katherine on 16 December 2021. The reflection chairs are located in the shaded surroundings of Araluen Park in Alice Springs and within the beautiful gardens of the Katherine Museum.
The Reflection Chair is perfectly positioned overlooking Lake Mary Ann to provide an area where police families, former colleagues and friends of a police officer who is no longer with us are able to visit, sit and reflect on their loved one or friend in pleasant surrounds. The chair offers a place of tranquility and peace to remember the sacrifice of those members who are no longer with us.
I just wanted to send my thanks for the financial assistance I received regarding my Public Health Study Tour in Indonesia. This was an amazing experience, opportunity and education benefit. Please send on my thanks to the NT Police Legacy Board and NT Police Membership. Ruby Huitson
Thank you so much to the people that have shared and donated to the Making a difference – Police Legacy Kokoda Trek fundraiser ????
NT Police Legacy have been so supportive and helpful to my Mum and sister and myself over the years. They are an amazing organisation that rely largely on donations to help children and families like mine whose loved ones have passed whilst serving in the Northern Territory Police Force.
The fact that you guys are supporting me in doing that really means something to me.
Thank you, Taylor Matthews
I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the incredible opportunity given to me over the past 5 years in enabling me to complete a Degree in Early Childhood teaching. I have secured a job at Wulagi Primary School for 2018. Without your help I would not have been able to complete this degree and I will be forever thankful for the opportunity you have given me. Tony Fuller our NTPL Legator, has become part of my Family now and being part of NT Police Legacy we are now part of a bigger family. I have felt looked after and cared for by you. Thanks again for all your time effort and money to get me where I am today, It is truly a blessing.
“I cannot express enough gratitude to all those involved in Northern Territory Police Legacy. Those who continue to donate and raise awareness have provided me with this incredible opportunity. When the opportunity presents itself, I encourage younger legatees to take part in this challenging, yet rewarding journey”
Thank You, Ruby Huitson!
“My message is don’t think of your payroll deduction to NT Police Legacy as just another deduction, or a donation, think of it as paying a gift forward to our wider NT Police Family and pray your family never needs it, but be comfortable in the knowledge that if it is needed, the support will be there.”
“At this point, I need to thank NT Police Legacy for their ongoing assistance with education costs for Joseph and Ruby. I could not have done it without their help. Thank you to those generous members who contribute fortnightly.”
“During my trip to Geelong for the Under 16’s National Basketball Championship I learned a lot from the experience and also bettered myself as a player. I would not have been able to have this experience without the NT Police Legacy’s help. Thankyou very much for providing assistance with me being able to compete at this tournament.”
“We just wanted to extend a huge Thank you to you and the NT Police Legacy Board for the consideration of school fees for Brad and Lily. Without your kind contributions Brad and Lily may not have had the opportunity to attend such a great and caring school such as CHCCS.”
“Northern Territory Police Legacy helps my Mum to pay for things like our school, our Birthday presents and special activities like my school camp. I had so much fun on camp this year with my friends.”
Northern Territory Police Legacy is a self supporting not for profit Incorporated Association which has been operating since 1991.
Northern Territory Police Legacy has a Constitution and is managed and directed by a Board of Management. The Board comprises four representatives nominated by the Northern Territory Police Association, a representative nominated by the Commissioner of Police, a representative nominated by the Minister for Police and a representative nominated by the Retired Police Association of the NT.
The scheme is funded by the donations paid by members of the Northern Territory Police Force and members of the public who kindly donate to help the Northern Territory Police Legacy support our Legatees.
Northern Territory Police Legacy aims to offer personal and/or financial assistance to surviving spouses and dependants of deceased Members who were serving or retired Northern Territory Police Officers.
The scheme assures families that there is an organisation prepared to assist them with their emotional, financial, education and welfare needs.
