Loves-Me-Not is a 'whole-school approach' to prevent relationship abuse and promote healthy relationships among senior secondary students. Loves-Me-Not includes a one-day workshop facilitated by Police, school staff and relevant local non-governmental organisations.

In 2019, Loves me not was implemented in 584 classes across 120 schools and educational institutions. In August, the Sophie Elliott Foundation (which partnered with Police in the development of Loves-Me-Not) formally signed over the Foundation’s intellectual property and resources to Police. Revised resources are available on Police’s School Portal.
