In a touching tribute to Brevet Sergeant Jason Doig, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty last month, the Government of South Australia has announced a generous donation of $100,000 to Women’s Safety Services SA (WSSSA). This significant contribution is made in honour of the late Brevet Sergeant, marking a poignant moment of remembrance and support for a cause close to his heart.
The solemn occasion will be observed with a Police Funeral at the Adelaide Convention Centre at 11am today, where members of the community are invited to pay their respects. The public’s presence is welcomed, and they are encouraged to register online to attend the ceremony.
Following the funeral service, a Guard of Honour will take place along North Terrace and King William Road, providing a dignified salute to Brevet Sergeant Doig’s dedicated service and sacrifice. This ceremonial act serves as a visual expression of the respect and esteem held for him by his colleagues and the community he served.
In a remarkable gesture of generosity during a period of profound loss, Brevet Sergeant Doig’s family has requested that mourners consider making a donation to Women’s Safety Services in memory of Jason, rather than bringing flowers. This act of kindness reflects the late officer’s spirit of selflessness and his commitment to making a positive impact in the community.
Women’s Safety Services plays a critical role in supporting women and their children who are facing domestic and family violence. The organisation operates the Domestic Violence Crisis Line and offers a variety of programs and services across multiple sites in South Australia, providing essential assistance and support to those in need.
The public’s contributions to Women’s Safety Services can be made through their website at https://womenssafetyservices.com.au/support-us/. This opportunity for donation not only honours the memory of Brevet Sergeant Doig but also supports a vital cause that contributes to the safety and well-being of the community.
The donation by the South Australian Government and the gesture by Brevet Sergeant Doig’s family are testaments to the enduring impact of his service and the community’s commitment to remembering his legacy. Through these acts of remembrance and support, the memory of Brevet Sergeant Jason Doig will continue to inspire and make a difference in the lives of many.
