GEORGIE CROZIER (LIB - Southern Metropolitan)

 

I was very pleased to be able to attend a reception at Government House last week along with my colleague in this place the Honourable Edward O'Donohue and the Minister for Police, the Honourable Lisa Neville, to recognise 100 years of women in policing.

In August 1917 two women, Madge Connor and Elizabeth Beers, took the step to commence duty with Victoria Police. They paved the way for thousands of other women, who have since contributed so much to the force, and they have been a tremendous example to the thousands who serve in all areas of the force today. All of those women were deservedly recognised on Thursday evening.

I would also like to acknowledge the work of Colleen Woolley, a former police officer who has written a book Arresting Women: Celebrating 100 Years of Women in the Victoria Police and who was also in attendance.
