Today we offer our condolences to the families of the four police officers who tragically lost their lives in Melbourne yesterday. The days ahead will also be difficult for their colleagues across the entire Victoria Police force as they deal with this awful event.
This horrific incident is a terrible example of the kind of danger that those who protect us face on a regular basis. We honour their ultimate sacrifice and it will not be forgotten.
