The Angela Taylor Child Protection Unit at Monash Medical Centre

Constable Angela Taylor was a youthful, energetic police officer who loved working with children so it was fitting that the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation and Southern Health named this expanded unit in her memory. This Unit provides medicals, counselling and treatment to child victims of physical and sexual abuse and is one of only two such units servicing Victoria. Funding from the Blue Ribbon Foundation enabled the purchase of new equipment and allowed for an expansion of the Unit’s size including the installation of a private entrance. A very significant part of the expansion was a dedicated police office that allows police members to conduct interviews and investigations in private thereby ensuring that appropriate protocols can be managed onsite.

Since its initial opening the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation has provided additional funding so that other necessary equipment could be purchased.
