Tragedy as a dedicated cop and mother of two 12-year-old twin girls ends her own life sending shockwaves through police ranks
- Much-loved senior female officer Audra Jaeger died at home on October 28
- Understood the senior constable was on stress leave from Wollongong posting
- 50-year-old was a mother of two 12-year-old twin girls and was found at home
- Her sudden death is the second suicide by a NSW police officer in two months
A ‘dedicated’ policewoman and mother of twin girls has ended her own life, rocking the New South Police force just two months after another officer also suicided.
Senior Constable Audra Jaeger, 50, who died on October 28, leaves behind 12-year-old twin girls, Harper and Evie.
Daily Mail Australia understands Ms Jaeger, who served in Sydney‘s eastern suburbs and at Wollongong, was on stress leave and died at home.
Ms Jaeger joined the police service at 28 and served for 21 years, working at Bondi and Waverley stations, before moving to Wollongong, south of Sydney.
She also worked at PCYCs in Sutherland and Lake Illawarra and took part in cancer charity work as part of a Cops Against Cancer cycle team.
A former colleague, Dianna Mackay, has started an official fundraiser to raise money for Ms Jaeger’s two daughters.
She shared a heartbreaking photo of the twins in front of a giant love heart drawn in the sand.
‘Senior Constable Audra Jaeger sadly passed away on 28 October 2022. She is survived by her twin daughters, Harper and Evie, who are both just twelve years old,’ Ms Mackay wrote.
‘Audra was an amazing person, friend, work colleague, partner, mumma and daughter.’
Ms Jaeger was ‘much loved by everyone who knew her’ Ms Mackay said.
‘Audra lit up the room no matter where she was; at work, at home or at play.
‘[She] was a massive beacon of light and burst of positive energy and even with her passing, her shining light will never be extinguished.’
One donor wrote ‘Such a beautiful person gone too soon, rest easy Aud.’
Tributes poured in from colleagues and loved ones, many through the charity, NSW Police Legacy.
It shared the tragic news on its social media pages on Wednesday: ‘We’re sorry, family, but we have more heartbreaking news.’
A NSW paramedic who had a chance encounter with her a week before her death said Ms Jaeger was ‘dedicated’ and friendly.
‘[She was a] dedicated Emergency Services colleague, our paths crossed many times for many different reasons and Audra always greeted me with a smile followed by a quick chat, we even had a chat at a restaurant the week before her passing, if only we knew, now it’s another sad loss that may have been prevented,’ he wrote.
‘RIP sister in blue,’ a former sergeant wrote.
‘Audra was always a pleasure to work with at the PCYC,’ a Sydney mum posted.
‘So so sad… a truly lovely person’ another woman wrote.
The tragedy comes less than two months after the body of off-duty male officer, Tanzeel Iftikhar Bashir, 23, was found in the Royal National Park.
Constable Bashir was found in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney, at about 12.40am on Saturday September 3 ( 2022 ).
Police had launched a search for the young off-duty officer at about 10.30pm on September 2 after concerns were raised for his welfare.
His colleagues found the Bankstown Police Area Command officer the following morning.
All funds raised for Audra Jaeger’s twins will be put into a trust for Harper and Evie Jaeger, and will be given to the girls when they turn 21.
The fundraiser has the modest target of $10,000 and had raised $2,655 by Wednesday evening.
