Protect Our Cops

Police Association of South Australia

The Police Association of South Australia came to us with a problem. The Government was proposing changes to legislation that would strip injured officers of compensation entitlements. We brought attention to this with a public awareness campaign that told the real stories of injured police officers. All activity drove to an online petition and called for people to join a rally on the steps of Parliament House. Public support was overwhelming. 14,515 people signed the petition. Around 4,000 people attended the rally. The government had no alternative. The legislation was overturned and entitlements restored. We protected those who protect us.
