Bryson, by all read accounts, was a lovely bloke and well respected Policeman with a great sense of humour.
He completed the Anacapa Sciences Intelligence Course and was then selected into the State Criminal Intelligence Section and was one of those chosen to initiate and conduct Patrol Intelligence Courses at Goulburn academy.
Nothing further, than what is recorded above, is known about this person at the time of publication and further information and photos would be appreciated.
