The Crime Couch with Rochelle Jackson
”Protecting The Protectors”
Glenn "Dutchy" Holland hasn't always been a Victoria Police Sergeant. He used to work in the casino industry and on international cruise ships. Dutchy's worked on the van, as a Detective in Crime Command and is currently operational on Melbourne's frontline.
But it's Dutchy's work in mental health where he really makes a difference. Seven years ago, at the request of his boss who was retiring due to mental ill-health, Dutchy started a group, "Protecting The Protectors". Last year, he was the recipient of an APM for his work in mental health. Not that you'd know it; Dutchy is a quiet hero who continues to make a difference every day, whether he's running or eating a doughnut.
