Victoria Police Memorial - Kings Domain Gardens
Anton Hazel and Marcus Ward
Opened in 2002, by the Chief Commissioner of Police, Christine Nixon, APM, and then Premier Steve Bracks, the Victoria Police Memorial situated in Kings Domain Gardens, Melbourne, stands as a dedication and constant reminder of the service provided by those brave men and women who have been killed in the line of duty.
The Memorial consists of a three metre high curved bluestone clad block wall, 18 metres in length, with the names of the deceased officers listed on cast bronze plaques. An amphitheatre is created by the curved seat behind the wall. The Victoria Police insignia is cast into the pavement in coloured marble and granite, acts as the focal point.
Kane Constructions negotiated the $500,000 design and construct contract and completed the works in mid-2002.
The Police Memorial was constructed to offer grieving families and fellow officers a place to come and reflect. Kane is proud to have been associated with this wonderful undertaking.
