On Thursday, June 27, RAAF Base Richmond hosted 17 members of New South Wales (NSW) Police along with their partners for its annual combined Dining In Night at the Officers Mess.
A total of 87 attended the evening, including Police from Hawkesbury and Nepean Local Area Command, along with North West Metro Region.
Events such as this reinforce the working relationship between Defence and NSW Police, as the support of state-based emergency services ensures RAAF Base Richmond can conduct major events or receive support during contingency events or emergencies.
In past, NSW Police have also been transported interstate by Air Force via RAAF Base Richmond in response to disaster relief operations.
The Dining In Night was able to raise $687.95 for 'Aussie Hero Quilts', which provides blankets, laundry bags, and other care items for Australian Defence Force personnel deployed on operations.
