On 6 August a good crowd turned out to see the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags flying above the Albury Police Station for the first time.

This will be a permanent arrangement, alongside the Australian flag.

This is a sign of the work being done by police and local residents, involving members of the Police Aboriginal Consultative Committee (PACC) and elders.

As has been said by others, this is more than a gesture – it is a sign of good relationships and a recognition of the land itself.

It was a great morning, and I would like to thank Wiradjuri elder Nancy Rooke, Rosina Galbraith, Tunney Murray, other elders, members of PACC and Murray River Police District Superintendent Evan Quarmby.
