High Tea at Launceston Country Club Casino

Northern District police hosted a “High Tea” to celebrate 100 years of women in Tasmania Police.

The event was held on Saturday 3 June at the Launceston Country Club Casino.

Commissioner Hine, Deputy Commissioner Tilyard and Assistant Commissioner Cowling attended the function with approximately 65 other serving men and women, retired officers and special guests.

The afternoon was very relaxed, with limited formalities, and the crowd were entertained by Constable Nathan Wheldon singing and playing acoustic guitar.

The function was part of the state-wide celebration to acknowledge the contribution of women in Tasmania Police since 1917.

A formal event will be held in Hobart later this year.
