Over the weekend, Manningham police in Victoria worked together with members of the St Haralambos Greek Orthodox Parish in Templestowe to respond to an emergency incident involving a member of the local Greek community.
According to a statement on Facebook by Manningham Police, police were called to a home in Doncaster on Friday evening to assist paramedics tend to an elderly Greek person.
Following the resolution of the incident, Manningham police contacted Father Elias Kentrotis at St Haralambos to assist in providing welfare support and pastoral care to the family and patient.
On Monday morning, police attended St Haralambos to thank Father Kentrotis for his assistance.
“While there, police discussed how they could assist with other church initiatives such as the Church Youth Group,” the Facebook statement reads.
“This was a fantastic example of emergency services working with the community, and we’re looking forward to working with St Haralambos in the future.”
