A plaque commemorates Sergeant Anthony Van Gorp's contribution as officer in charge of Healesville Police Station.

Sergeant Van Gorp provided support for many groups such as the CFA, SES and schools and organised the Tricia O’Reilly Scholarship, the Code One school concerts and the Portsea Camp each year for disadvantaged young people across the Yarra Valley. Sergeant van Gorp’s suicide on 23 March 2010, shocked the community he had served for 14 years and led to legislative changes in November 2011 to the act governing police disciplinary procedures.
