The Maroochydore Police Communications Centre is running strides ahead with six staff members taking part in the Sunshine Coast Marathon, last Sunday, August 20.

Participants all proudly wore team sponsored shirts, promoting 'Our People Matter' and 'White Ribbon'.

Superintendent Darryl Johnson, Sunshine Coast District Officer, attended the pre-race photo shoot to support all participants in line with the 'Our People Matter' vision of employees living longer, healthier, more productive and satisfying lives.

Superintendent Johnson was thrilled to have a number of members from our district participating in this event, not only doing themselves proud, but representing the district with distinction.

“Being healthy is an important part of policing, as it is in all walks of life, and it is fantastic to see a number of our officers out there participating in this great community event,” Superintendent Johnson said.

“What is also pleasing is their promotion of White Ribbon – you can see that insignia on their shirts as you do on the Sunshine Coast Falcons and Maroochydore Roos AFL jerseys and jumpers.

“As Chair of White Ribbon here on the Sunshine Coast, the Committee is pleased to see White Ribbon being recognised among the community and enhancing the awareness that violence of any kind is not acceptable.

“The QPS is proudly working with White Ribbon to create a safer workplace, and by QPS members wearing a white ribbon it is a show of our commitment to ending violence against women.”

Our People Matter strategy focuses on health, safety and wellbeing of QPS employees and their families. Sergeant Prizeman took advantage of this strategy enlisting her daughter Chloe to also participate and encouraged her mother to become a fitter and healthier 50-year-old grandmother of two.

“Our community expects its police officers will be fit and capable of exercising their powers to respond to community needs, both physical and mentally and we are meeting this challenge head on through our visible presence participating in physically active community events happening in our backyard, such as the Sunshine Coast Marathon,” Sergeant Prizeman said.
