My deepest sympathies to Lucy and family. Keith was a true gentleman and a wonderful man. He was a real character and made everyone laugh and feel special. I will always appreciate and remember his sage advice not only about policing but about life in general. He was a one of a kind and he will be deeply missed by many people.
Vale Byrnesy.
Tony Wheeler
Condolences to Lucy and all of of Keith’s family.
Keith and I met at the Qld Academy in 1990. I was about ten tears younger than Byrnesy, but he, Martin Cook and I were probably still senior to most of the other probationaries, so a bond developed between us.
(Bruce Willett will have memories of that I’m sure.)
As a live-in at the Academy, probably the highlight of most days was starting by sharing breakfast in the canteen with Byrnsey and Cooky. The “entertainment” was usually provided by Probationary Keith Byrnes.
As I’ve heard from Bruce today, and Liz, Keith was a story teller. Embellishment was sometimes apparent, but mostly it added to the mood and enjoyment of the story.
I only saw Keith once since Academy days. How I wish there were more times. Bruce, you did a great job. Have a good time up there in the big pub Byrnsey!
Maureen &Joe Fawcett
To Lucy and family Joe and I were so very sad to hear of Keith’s passing, he always had a smile and a laugh when we met him in the park at Evans Head what a joy it was to know both of you we never did finish that last game of euchre.
Last year nearly to the day we visited Keith at Fern Bay you had to go to your band that day what a great memory that will be for Joe and myself…Sending gods blessing you and your wider family.
Maureen and Joe

This evening ( 16 April 2022 @ 11.36pm Central Australia Time ) we learnt of the tragic passing of a very special and down right awesome Northern Territory Police Officer.
A highly respected and valued member of the Blue Family. Micky D, you will be sorely missed. Almost everyone that every worked with you will have an amazing story to share.
Micky dedicated approximately 20 years of his life to the force. Like many of us, he had seen his fair share of what this job throws at us.
Devastatingly he lost the battle but will be remembered by many as one of the good guys.
We extend our sincerest condolences to the friends, family and colleagues for this tremendous loss.
If you or anybody you know are experiencing difficulties there are resources and support services available. Struggling to cope with everyday life doesn’t look or feel the same for everyone.
These services are there to listen and talk it through with you to help you get the support you need. Help is available.
To the blue family, keep an eye on your mates, notice when they start experiencing signs of depression or anxiety. Ask them if they are ok, turn up at their house, check on them, refer them to our well-being teams.

Deepest condolences to Mick’s family, friends and colleagues.

I worked with Mick, on GDs, at Fairfield Police Station in the late 1970s – very early 1980s and remember his Raucous laugh.

He was a lot of fun to work with and just a funny bastard to be with and his ‘comb over’ his thinning hair – would never stay in place.

May you Forever Rest In Peace old mate.

 

Cal ” Uncle Charlie ”


 

Mick was one of the first Life Members inducted into 22 Division ( Liverpool ) Police Rugby League. He loved his Police footy and was happy to hear about your success before his passing.  Go the Bulls.

Greg Sweeney.


 

Prior to joining the NSWPF, Mick was employed at a Pastry cook for 7 years, 2 months and a Confectioner for 8 months and was a fully qualified pastry cook.

Although he was widely known as Mick – his Christian name was actually Hugh ( and it is Hugh SWEENEY that he went by on his application to join the NSWPF ).

He was described as 5′ 11″ tall, weighing 12 stone, with Hazel eyes, Fair complexion & Fair hair ( I wonder if it was as thin back in 1960 ? ).

He was Married at the time.

He obtained, at completion of Training Class 85A, a mark of 54%.

He could type, on the 15 June 1961, 20 W.P.M.

He completed the three day course in Civil Defence in January 1962.


 

In June, 1973, SenCon Mick Sweeney was attending a motor vehicle accident on the Camden Valley Way, Leppington, near the Leppington Lawn Cemetery, at night and in a dark patch or roadway, when he was struck by a passing vehicle.

At the time, Camden Valley Way was a sealed roadway with gravel edges, one lane each way and very poorly lit – and similar to an outback country road.

The impact caused him to be thrown a fair distance through the air, landing on the roadway in his head.

Mick received serious head and other body injuries which were life threatening at the time.

He was hospitalised at Liverpool for 10 days before a miraculous recovery and he then returned to work.

He Retired in 1991 whilst attached to Merrylands Police Station.

 

In March 1974, SenCon Mick Sweeney and Cst Peter Gould ( # 15542 ), attended a factory at Green Valley and removed a 4 foot red belly black snake.

The Constables managed to get the snake into a cardboard box and conveyed the confined snake back to Liverpool Police Station.

There, the snake escaped from the box, causing staff to head for higher ground.

Some jumped onto tables, chairs and counters to escape the snake.

It then took a brace and courageous Senior Constable Roger BERGAMIN ( #10682 ) to capture the slim 4 foot snake with a stick and return it to the box and seal it.

I can imagine the raucous laughing going on.

Police show solidarity against domestic violence

Mary (not her real name) spoke with the Daily Liberal yesterday about her three decades of violence she suffered at the hands of her partner before she went to the police.

She had noticed police wearing white ribbons outside the Dubbo Police Station and decided to share her story.

“Women have to start standing up for themselves,” she said.

Mary said some of the injuries she had suffered in her abusive relationship had been fractures to her nose, jaw, arm and ribs.

“Domestic violence is in the community but women are not coming forward and letting the police know,” she said.

“They need to come forward now, not wait like I waited for 32 years.”

Mary said she believed White Ribbon Day was a good initiative to bring public attention to the issue of domestic violence.

Recently she has begun working to help others affected.

“I have worked with domestic violence victims for the last two years,” she said.

“I have seen both sides.”

White ribbons were worn on the shirts of every Dubbo police officer yesterday as they took a stance against domestic violence.

Orana Local Area Command (LAC) duty officer Inspector Brad Edwards said Dubbo police had handed out many white ribbons to raise awareness of the day and answered questions about the day from members of the public.

“I think it is very important that society realises there is no excuse for violence against women,” he said.

“The fact that it still happens today is pathetic.”

“We know the statistics from on the job experience.”

Dubbo police and their colleagues across NSW all took a pledge against violence against women and wore white ribbons in a show of solidarity across the state.

Brad EDWARDS
Acting senior sergeant Brad Edwards

Would your parents like their property damaged,” Senior sergeant tells children

Wellington police sergeant Brad Edwards has told children at Wellington Public School he and his officers are pushing up the ante on young children aged from nine to 13 throwing rocks.

“I am very upset children in the town are throwing rocks.

“A lot of people have had their car windows smashed. It has cost them more than $50,000,” he said.

“These are parked cars near the railway line, people’s roofs, their houses and they are upset their property is being damaged. Would your parents like their property damaged,” he asked the children.

“I want to get them, take them to the magistrate and lock them up.

“We have cameras now everywhere, hidden from view, monitoring these children. We will lock up these people.” he added.

He warned the children police were answering the community’s plea for the rock throwing incidents to stop.

“Tell your parents, tell your teachers when you see them doing these things,” he said.

Children in the crowd at the school said their parents had been victims of the latest outbreak of vandalism.

“My mum had the back window of her car smashed by a rock,” one child told the class.

“It was so badly damaged mum had to buy a new car.

“There is a hole in our window from people throwing rocks,” another said.

Children said slingshots with rocks were being aimed at people and cars.

“A slingshot is no different to a gun, it injures people and they may die.

“It’s an illegal weapon,” Sgt Edwards said.

The officer also told children social media site Facebook was an ineffective measure in countering the rock throwers and other incidents.

“Don’t go on Facebook and bully people. Turn it off. Don’t gossip and target people,” he said.

The sergeant also said children seen on school grounds during holidays will be prosecuted.

“I went to this primary school but I didn’t want to come back during the holidays,” he said.
