The BACKUP for Life EXPO is a chance for former NSW Police Officers and their families to find information about a broad range of support services and systems to assist in the transition to civilian life as well as their retirement. It is also an exciting opportunity for not only our former officers and their families to be recognised for their committed service to the NSW Police Force, but also a great chance to catch up with former colleagues and friends.
The NSW Government recognises and appreciates the valuable service offered by former NSW police officers to the community. The importance of ensuring that those who have served the community are supported cannot be understated. Many former NSW police officers transition out of the NSW Police Force facing a broad range of challenges when returning to a civilian lifestyle, in particular mental health issues which can significantly impact on their immediate family. The NSW Government has partnered with NSW Police Legacy to design and coordinate a program that provides appropriate support systems for these individuals.
