Seven police officers were escorted into Mount Isa under lights and sirens on Saturday afternoon as part of the 10th Wall to Wall Ride of Remembrance.
The ride is a tribute that honours the many law enforcement officers killed in service.
The seven men John Laird a current VicPol Senior Sergeant, president of The Police Association Victoria and chair of the Wall2Wall national committee, Luke Moore a retired Detective Superintendent from NSW, Steve Hudson who currently serves as an Inspector in NSW, Mark Vipond a current Vicpol leading Senior Constable in the road policing drug and alcohol section, Brian Rix a retired Detective Inspector, ex President of The Police Association Victoria and co-founder of the Wall to Wall concept, were travelling from Longreach to deliver batons which held the names of fallen police officers.
The batons will be delivered to the Commissioner.
Acting Sergeant Aimee Sewell said Wall to Wall is a fundraising program that promotes Police legacy throughout the country.
"Each police jurisdiction or state has their own legacy," Acting Sgt Sewell said.
"The men gave a presentation about the services Queensland Police Legacy provide while they were here," Acting Sgt Sewell said.
"Another topic they spoke about was mental health. Alot of police officers are affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental illness. We obviously see things members of the public would never get to see.
"One of the gentlemen told his story, he tried to commit suicide as a result of the job, but lucky for us he survived. Now he spreads the message to encourage all officers to speak up and ask for help when they need it.
"It was such a powerful message.
These kind of events help us to realise we need to be their for each other and support one another and let them know it'll be okay," she said.
Mount Isa Police have a psychologist Service Officer who supports police around the region.
Christine Foley has worked in the region for the last two years.
She said she supplies a diverse range of psychological care to officers in the Mount Isa region.
"Critical care and mental health are part of the service. We identify symptoms within the individual and provide services if required in that instance," Dr Foley said.
