Town Hall lit in blue to honour fallen police

Glen Eira Town Hall will be lit up in blue on Thursday night as a tribute to the four police officers killed on the Eastern Freeway 12 months ago.

Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor, Senior Constable Kevin King and new recruits Constable Josh Prestney and Constable Glen Humphris died when they were hit by a truck in the emergency lane of the Eastern Freeway near Burke Road on 22 April 2020.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said the lighting of Town Hall is a small gesture to show Council’s support for the men and women who risk their lives every day to keep our communities safe

“Their tragic deaths are the greatest loss of police lives in a single incident in Victoria's history. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen police,” she said.
