At 1.00pm on Thursday the 27 March 1986, a car bomb exploded outside the police complex in Russell Street Melbourne. As a result, young Constable Angela Rose Taylor took the full force of the explosion and later died in hospital. Angela Rose Taylor is, and will remain a symbol of all that is good in the police.
