WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB? Seeing the gratitude of victims when I tell them that we caught the person or persons responsible for the crime and seeing the satisfaction when they hear the guilty verdict at court. THE WORST THING? I don’t think I can ever get used to telling families how their loved ones have passed away. WHY DID YOU BECOME A POLICE OFFICER ? I worked for the NSW Police prior to joining the Academy. I was employed as a general support officer and was also studying criminology. HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU WON THE ROTARY POLICE OFFICER OF THE YEAR? It was a real honour and compliment to be nominated. It feels good to be told to have other people tell you that you are doing a good job. Getting that recognition from other officers and Rotary makes it all that more special. YOUR FAVOURITE PAST TIME? Shopping, of course. Isn’t that any girl’s past time? DO YOU HAVE ANY REGRETS? I don’t think so. Not yet anyway. Ask me in five years time. WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD? Continuing as a detective. You only have to open a newspaper or turn on the television to see the effect that detectives can have in criminal investigations and major crime.
