Northcote police officer posthumously honoured with Breavington Award

A NORTHCOTE police officer known for quietly going beyond the call of duty was posthumously recognised for his outstanding service to the community.

Peers at Northcote police station were unanimous in their decision to honour the late Sergeant Brian Kilmartin with the Breavington Award, which was presented to his widow Andrea and sons Joshua, 16, and James, 14, after a ceremony at All Nations Park war memorial last week.

Sergeant Kilmartin died from heart failure on September 30 last year, aged 49.

The award for policing excellence is presented annually in memory of former Northcote police officer and World War II prisoner of war Corporal Rodney Breavington.

Northcote police Senior Sergeant David Yates described the late Sergeant Kilmartin as a dedicated, kind and caring police officer.

“He was particularly caring when it came to the elderly,” Sen-Sgt Yates said.

“When an elderly man was reported missing in Fairfield, Brian came back on his own time and continued the search. That was the kind of man he was.”

During Tuesday’s ceremony, a plaque honouring Sergeant Kilmartin and former posthumous Breavington Award winners Senior Constables Mark Bateman and Fiona Robinson (killed in a car crash in May 2000), was unveiled on the war memorial usually reserved for military personnel.

Corporal Rodney Breavington, a former Fairfield resident, was executed by the Japanese in Singapore in 1942 during World War II after escaping from a prison camp where thousands of allies were held.

He and three other prisoners were forced to dig their own graves before facing a firing squad.

Breavington pleaded with his executioners to shoot him and free the other men but his captors ignored the plea.

He refused a blindfold and clutched a photo of his wife as he was shot dead.

Darebin RSL spokesman Bill Mountford said police, like other servicemen and women, put their lives on the line.

He said it was fitting that recipients of the Breavington Award who’d lost their lives while serving their communities should get recognition with a plaque on the war memorial.

But Mr Mountford said he hoped there would be no need for any more plaques to be awarded posthumously.
