Mr Melhem: Respect must also be given to the police men and women of Victoria following the tragic death of four on-duty police officers yesterday on the Eastern Freeway.

We grieve alongside their families and the entire emergency service community. These officers were simply doing their job—keeping us safe.

Details are still emerging of the incident, and I hope that the formal investigation can tell us how this devastating event transpired.

Members of Victoria Police work every day to protect our community—especially so during the current coronavirus outbreak.

We must never forget their bravery and sacrifice.
