On Friday June 2, Doomadgee police delivered their supply of care packages to the Doomadgee Women’s Shelter, to assist victims of domestic violence.
The project was designed by Acting Senior Constable Aimee Sewell, who wanted to work in partnership with the Doomadgee Womens Shelter and provide additional support for victims of domestic violence.
Each care package contains valuable information regarding resources and support organisations, and toiletry items needed for an overnight stay. ASC Sewell also rallied her colleagues in Doomadgee and Mount Isa, who donated women’s clothing and shoes, often needed during difficult times.
ASC Sewell also created packages specific to children, which contain items such as colouring-in pencils, lollies and toys that children might need if living away from home.
Doomadgee Officer in Charge Acting Senior Sergeant Marty Halls also promoted the importance of the project.
“Aimee identified the opportunity for police to help victims of domestic and family violence even further with these care packages,” Acting Senior Sergeant Halls said.
“I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication by Aimee to complete this project.”
