Opening the Redfern Police Station

I was pleased to be part of the recent opening of the new Police Station in Redfern.

The police at this new station have committed to continuing to work collaboratively and respectfully with the Indigenous community. It was important to have Shane Philips from Tribal Warrior and Mick Mundine from the Pemulwuy project at the opening alongside the Police Minister, Police Commissioner and the state and federal representatives.

We all hope the new police superintendent, Andrew Holland, continues the work and approach of his predecessor, Luke Freudenstein who was also present at the opening.

After the official ceremony, we enjoyed a performance from the Tribal Warrior Dance Group who did a wonderful job despite the chilly winds! You can find out more here.
