Race Day helped raise awareness of domestic and family violence

Tuggerah Lakes officers with Wyong Race Club staff on race day

Wyong Race Club has partnered with Tuggerah Lakes Police to help raise awareness of domestic and family violence.

With several domestic and family violence awareness events cancelled this year due to COVID-19, the Wyong Race Club came on board to assist local Police in raising awareness on November 26, by welcoming officers to the club as part of Domestic and Family Awareness Week.

With the Tuggerah Lakes District having one of the highest rates of domestic and family violence incidents in the State, it is hoped that this kind of community partnership will help change perceptions of this crime.

On the day, Race 5 was renamed the ‘No Excuse for Abuse’ – Domestic and Family Awareness Week, with Sky Racing also helping promote the cause by interviewing Tuggerah Lakes Crime Manager, Detective Chief Inspector Glen Trayhurn.

Tuggerah Lakes PD thanks Wyong Race Club for its support.
