C.I.B. Centenary  1879 – 1979  page 38    As at 1 December, 1979, there were 83 detec­tive and plainclothes police performing scientific investigation duty in New South Wales, the majority in an operational capacity. These officers perform a vital function in bringing the physical features of the crime scene to the courtroom and in keeping the general field detective in touch with the latest trends in forensic science. further expansion lies ahead.  There is no doubt that the criminal justice process will continue to rely heavily on the expert treatment and modern presentation of physical evidence as provided by this section.

Signature spurious, witness says

 

SYDNEY: A second handwriting witness gave evidence in the District Criminal Court yesterday at the trial of Mr Ian Sinclair, a former Cabinet Minister, that signatures on the 1975 annual returns of three funeral companies were spurious.

Mr James Buglio, of Balgowlah Heights, told the court there were 15 gross dissimilarities between the genuine signature of Mr George M. Sinclair and those on the annual company returns.

Mr George Sinclair was auditor and financial controller of the three funeral companies and the father of Mr Ian Sinclair. He died in January, 1976.

Mr Ian Sinclair has pleaded not guilty to three charges of forging and three of uttering, each with intent to defraud, and three of making false statements in the annual returns.

The funeral companies are Allan Walsh (Hornsby) Pty Ltd, Allan Walsh Pty Ltd of Chatswood and G. Beavan Pty Ltd of Bowral.

Last Tuesday a police handwriting witness, Detective-Sergeant Denis Wardrobe, gave evidence that the signatures of Mr George M. Sinclair on the three company returns were not genuine. He could not say who was the author of the signatures.

Mr Buglio, a private document examiner, said many facets of the spurious signatures were totally alien to the writer of the genuine signatures.

There was poor line quality caused by the lack of speed in writing and indications that the pen had been lifted from the paper and then carefully replaced.

Mr Jack Hiatt, QC, for the Crown,

asked Mr Buglio whether the characteristics of the spurious signatures could

have been caused by the writer being seriously ill or having drugs, medication

or alcohol.

Mr Buglio said that this was ” extremely remote ” and ” nigh on impossible “. One would expect some deterioration, but there would still be some writing habits.

“You would not expect that a sick person would have the visual activity nor muscular control to replace the pen when it had been lifted”, he said.

In reply to Mr Murray Gleeson, QC, for Mr Sinclair, he agreed he had not known when he gave evidence at committal proceedings in January that cheques

used as a comparison to the annual returns were signed about a week before the date they bore.

The trial will continue today.

29 Jul 1980 – Signature spurious, witness says – Trove


 

Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 – 1995), Thursday 27 September 1979, page 32

5 — Forged signature alleged

On 12th April 1976 Ian Sinclair filed with the Corporate Affairs Commission Annual Returns for the year ended 31st December 1975 for Allan Walsh Chatswood, Allan Walsh Hornsby and G. Beavan.

These Returns were handwritten, all the writing on them being his writing with the exception of some signatures. The Returns contained information that each company held an Annual General Meeting on 31st December 1975 and that accounts were laid before each Annual General Meeting. In fact, no Annual General meeting of any of these companies was held on 31st December 1975 and no accounts could have been presented as none had been prepared. Ian Sinclair, at the time he filed these documents, was well aware of both these matters.

Each Return contains in it a certificate purporting to have been signed by George Sinclair as auditor of the company, certifying that the accounts for the year ended 30th June 1975 of each company had been audited.

When I took evidence from Mrs Dunkerley [ an employee of Mr George Sinclair ] she expressed doubts about the genuineness of the signature “George M. Sinclair” on the 1975 Annual Return of G. Beavan. I also showed the signatures on these documents to Miss Rene Jones who had worked for George Sinclair for forty-four years and who was familiar with his signature. She expressed doubt about these signatures, but was not certain.

I first asked Ian Sinclair about the signatures on the 1975 Annual Return of G. Beavan when I took evidence from him on 3rd July 1978. He identified for me his signatures on that document, and pointing then to the signature “George M. Sinclair” he said:

“That is my father’s signature, George Sinclair, Auditor. This is while he was ill, yes, that’s my signature.

Q. That’s your signature.

A. My signature as Director and my father’s as auditor. This was made up while my father was critically ill, and, I am afraid, only partly able to communicate.

Q. Can you recall when that document was prepared?

A. It would have been prepared at the time of my father’s serious illness

before his death.

Q. As I understand it, your father was seriously ill for some considerable time.

A. That’s right, but I mean this was in the last days. This was made up to 31st December. It was signed by him, this is certainly his signature here, George M. Sinclair, and it was prepared, it would have been before his death. In other words it was the beginning of January. It is a fairly faint hand at that stage”.

On 26th January 1979 I read out to Ian Sinclair what Mrs Dunkerley said about the signature on the G. Beaven Return for 1975, and he said, although I did not specifically ask him a question about this signature:

“My query is that I certainly had not signed my father’s signature on anything and I am concerned that there seems to be a suggestion with Exhibit 82 that it’s not his signature. I certainly didn’t put it there and I am at a loss to understand who would have put it there if my father didn’t put it there and that’s why I’m concerned”.

Later on the same day he said: “I certainly have not signed my father’s signature on anything at any time and if I ever have, and I didn’t in this instance, I’ve always put pp. I. Sinclair or I.S. or such. I haven’t on any of these documents for any of these companies”.

Since I commenced my Inquiry I have obtained possession of hundreds of cheques bearing the signature of George Sinclair, and I have seen his writing on numerous other documents. The three signatures, “George M. Sinclair”, on three Annual Returns appeared to me to be quite unlike the signature of George M. Sinclair found, for example, on the cheques in his personal account. On 26th July 1979 I showed these three original Annual Returns to Ian Sinclair, drawing his attention to the signatures purporting to be those of his father, and I asked him to tell me when those signatures were put on the documents. He told me that these documents were among papers left by his father at the time of his death, that his father had told him he had started to prepare the Annual returns and he wanted him to conclude them and file them.

Ian Sinclair told me that he had found these documents some time after the death of his father, i.e. after 20th January 1976.

When I asked him to point out to me the handwriting of his father on any portion of these documents he was unable to do so, and said that the signature was not exactly like his father’s normal signature but he presumed that they were signed before he died.

When I put to him that, apart from the signatures on these documents, all details were written by him, in his own handwriting, he agreed except that the ruling out of irrelevant portions of the forms was done by somebody else as, according to him, he did not have a ruler. He said that he had had discussions with his father about these companies and had believed that everything was in order, although he realised, in fact, no Annual General Meetings had been held and no accounts had been presented. He also agreed that what he was putting to me was that he had found three bland documents with the only writing on them being, in each case, the signature “George M. Sinclair”. He said that they weren’t just blank documents, however, as they were connected with papers relating to each of these three companies, and it was because of that that he was able to fill in the details on them.

There are in my custody files of George Sinclair relating to each of these three companies, Each file contains, amongst other things, in George Sinclair’s own handwriting information which was apparently included in the 1974 Annual Return of the company. Ian Sinclair told me that these documents were with a lot of other documents relating to these companies at his mother’s house. I asked him specifically whether he placed the signature “George M. Sinclair” on any of these documents and he denied doing this, claiming these signatures were on the documents when he found them and that the documents, apart from the signatures “George M. Sinclair” were, in each instance, blank.

When I put to him that he had lodged the documents without checking whether an audit had been carried out or an Annual General Meeting had been held, he told me that he presumed an audit had been carried out for each company be cause his father signed the form as auditor. He also said that his father’s signature varied from time to time and that he sometimes left things in blank. He again added that he knew the accounts had not been completed and an Annual General Meeting had not been held.

In the bundles of papers made available to me there was a file of George Sinclair’s containing a number of blank Annual Returns; none of these had been signed. The Annual Return of Sinclair Pastoral Company which was typed and signed by George Sinclair as auditor was filed on 15th January 1976, something which turned out to be of some significance.

I found it difficult to accept Ian Sinclair’s evidence that he had found three Annual Returns which were blank except for the signatures of his father and that he thereby felt en titled, because they were connected with documents to the companies, to complete them and file them. Although he knew that none of the companies had held an Annual General Meeting no accounts had been presented, and, obviously, despite his denials, that no accounts had been audited, he still lodged documents. Even if this explanation were true, it says little for his sense of responsibility as a director of these companies (as he believed himself to be) to file documents in such circumstances. I also found it difficult to reconcile this evidence with the evidence given by him on 3rd July 1978 that the 1975 G. Beavan Annual Return was prepared before the death of his father and that the signature “George M. Sinclair” was “certainly” the signature of his father.

Since I was not satisfied with these explanations, and the signature “George M. Sinclair” on these Annual Returns did not appear to me to be genuine, I arranged for Det Sgt Denis William Wardrobe, the Officer-in-Charge of the Document Examination Unit, Scientific Investigation Section of NSW Police Force, to examine these signatures and to compare them with signatures of George Sinclair on cheques signed by him. I also invited Det Sgt Wardrobe to compare the signatures with the signature “George M. Sinclair” appearing on the 1975 Annual return for Sinclair Pastoral Company. Det Sgt Wardrobe, after he had carried out his examination, told me that the signatures “George M. Sinclair” appearing on the Annual Returns of Allan Walsh Chatswood, Allan Walsh Hornsby and G. Beavan were not genuine signatures and bore the elements of forgery. He said that they lacked speed, were slowly written, shown by hesitancy, that the size of the letters was not constant, that they varied quite considerably, that they were written slowly and less skilfully than the signatures on each of the cheques, showing some similarity with the genuine signatures, and said that the only logical conclusions that he could find from the examination was that somebody has either had a genuine signature from which to copy or it was copied from memory by somebody who knew the signature of the person involved.

Amongst other signatures looked at by Det Sgt Wardrobe were signatures on cheques signed by George Sinclair within a few days of his death on 20th January 1976. In his opinion, none of those signatures showed any loss of fluency, despite the fact that they were written by a person close to death….

At the request of McGormly [ Mr Ian Sinclair’s counsel ] I permitted Ian Sinclair to have the signatures and documents examined by Det Sgt Wardrobe looked at by Mrs Patricia Schutz, a person who is a qualified handwriting expert. She examined these signatures, without being made aware of Det Sgt Wardrobe’s finding, and came to exactly the same conclusions as he did….

[ The documents ] were filed months after his father’s death and at a time when he realised that the affairs of these companies were in a mess. He obviously felt it necessary to file the documents himself; otherwise, he could have asked Mr Haylen, who was already at work trying to prepare accounts for these companies, to file them….

I do not accept Ian Sinclair’s explanation that, after his father’s death, he found three blank documents with three signatures purporting to be his father’s, although not looking like them, connected with three bundles of papers concerning the three companies. I also do not accept that these documents were completed before his father’s death and singed by his father. The circumstances of the matter, his unacceptable and inconsistent explanations, the lack of motive on the part of anyone else, including his father, to forge these signatures, coupled with his filling in and lodging documents he knew to be false, convinced me that these signatures were forgeries and that he was the author of them. It follows from this that I regard his denials to me as being false,, and deliberately so.

Kev is remembered, by his many work mates, as having NSW Number plates  KEV-000 displayed on his vehicle(s) – an old yellow Chrysler then a gold Holden Statesman at Hurstville.

He is also remembered as being a great bloke by his work mates.

He has been highly respect by all that have worked with him and is being greatly missed by his wife, children, grand children, sister & brother-in-law.

If everyone had Kevin’s integrity and loved and cared for their family and friends as Kevin did, the world would be a much better place.

BRUCE is NOT mentioned on the Police Wall of Remembrance * NOT JOB RELATED


FURTHER INFORMATION IS NEEDED ABOUT THIS PERSON, THEIR LIFE, THEIR CAREER AND THEIR DEATH.

PLEASE SEND PHOTOS AND INFORMATION TO Cal


May they forever Rest In Peace


 

Prior to joining the NSWPF – Bruce SHIELS worked for the Department of Local Government, as a Clerk, on probation as of 1 April 1952 until his permanent position in June 1953 being advertised.

He then joined the Police in 1958.

He just made the required weight by drinking jugs of water and over a pound of bananas prior to weigh in.

He worked at Waverley on the motor bikes and at Bondi where he made detectives.

At age 32 Bruce survived 4 operations for an aggressive cancer.

He had great support from his police family.

He was considered a miracle survivor and was transferred from the Pillage Squad to light duties at the CIB.

He remained for there for many years, back on full duties with the “Breakers”. The cancer experience made him very conscious of his own mortality. He loved to entertain and be entertained. Simple things in life gave him great pleasure. Family BBQs and days out on the golf course especially with the Police Golf Club were of great importance to him. Bruce served from 1 11 58 till 17. 1 .90. At retirement he was in charge of the South West Drug Squad. Bruce passed away in 20001 after yet another 4 year battle with lung cancer. A lot of older police and retirees may remember him as a great poet and a born entertainer at many Police functions. He was honoured by a Police presence at his funeral. Not a day goes by when he is not missed.

 


 

One of Bruces’ poems:

 

Carolyn Shiels ( 21 Oct 2015

As promised, I have published one of Dads ‘works’. After reading the biography of Darcy – I kind of felt a bit of empathy for him…. but I know that Dad never did…..

THE GREY GREY WALLS OF GAOL….
by Det Sgt Bruce SHIELS (dec)
…..a Tribute to Darcy Dugan

(sung to the tune of the Green Green Grass of Home)

The old Rozelle don’t look the same, now that Darcy’s lost the game,
Because to meet him was half the CIB.
Down the stairs he came with his knees shakin’
Hands on head, his poor heart breakin’
Again, he’ll touch the Grey Grey Walls of Gaol.

Yes they’ll all come to meet him.
And his favourite screws will greet him
Though again, he’ll touch the Grey Grey Walls of Gaol.

Now the Wayside is still standing, though the walls are cracked and dry
And the Reverend Ted has lost his best hymn singer
But at Grafton there’s a choir that’s classy
Fifteen screws and our dear Darcy
Again, he’ll touch the Grey Grey Walls of Gaol.

Now the big holdups are finished, and the city’s nice and still
and the druggies go to church with Reverend Ted.
But with Darcy in… there’s no supply there
No pot ….and no LSD there
While Darcy’s in the Grey Grey Walls of Gaol.

Yes they’ll all come to meet him
And his favourite screws will greet him
Though again, he’ll touch the Grey Grey Walls of Gaol.

When Darcy woke and looked around him
He saw that 50 Police had found him
and realised – dead set – he wasn’t dreamin’

But there’s a lawyer….and a dear old Padre
On and on….. they’ll try for Darcy…
But still ..he’ll touch the Grey Grey Walls of Gaol.

Yes they’ll all come to meet him,
His favourite screws will greet him
I hope they bury him
Behind the Walls of Gaol.

Police And Community Youth Clubs Restructure

Hansard                         24 October 2002

POLICE AND COMMUNITY YOUTH CLUBS RESTRUCTURE
Mr MARTIN

    • (Bathurst) [12.31 p.m.]: As honourable members would be aware, the Minister for Police, the Hon. Michael Costa, recently restructured the police and community youth club [PCYC] organisation to decentralise it and make it more community based. The Government provided a $8 million package, $5 million of which was to boost capital upgrades and a trial of civilian support to free police from police work. I have two police and community youth clubs in my electorate, one in Lithgow and one in Bathurst. When I was a child I used the facilities of the club at Lithgow and later I was a member of its management board. Senior Constable Jeff Doherty was recently named Policeman of the Year for his work with the Bathurst Police and Community Youth Club. An article in the

Western Advocate

    • states:
    • Bathurst Police officer Jeff Doherty has been named “Policeman of the Year”.
    Senior Constable Doherty received the prestigious award from Police Commissioner Ken Moroney.
    • Senior Constable Doherty is the son of the late Ted Doherty, who was one of the police officers in charge of the police boys club in Lithgow when I was a child. He went on to be a very senior police officer, reaching the rank of inspector. Unfortunately, he died last year just after he retired. Jeff is carrying on the great Doherty tradition. The article continues:
      • Senior Constable Doherty has been working at Bathurst PCYC, working to help disadvantaged young people and change their attitudes towards the police service.
      • He joined the police force in what he likes to call “a family business”, his father and brother both being in the service.
      • In a little over 18 months, Senior Constable Doherty has made the PCYC Breakfast and Domestic Violence Programs into “a labour of love”.
    • Senior Constable Doherty has always been interested in kids and youth-related issues. It is great that he has been able to make the program a success. He has three young boys. He is not only passionate about his job, but he is extremely modest about his achievements. He was a bit embarrassed about winning this prestigious award. But those around him in the community know that it has been well earned. The article continues:
      • Senior Constable Doherty’s involvement in the PCYC is a valuable service to the police force, the kids involved and the greater community.
      • The PCYC’s breakfast program is for kids who either don’t attend or have trouble getting to school, while the domestic violence program targets children who either have experienced some kind of domestic abuse at home, or have been the direct victims of domestic attacks.
      • The breakfast program gives kids who may not receive breakfast normally a good meal to start the day and at least three days of school a week.
      • The domestic violence program offers counselling and support services as well as a place where the kids can have fun and forget about the trauma in their lives.
      • “The programs also give the kids the chance to actually interact with police officers when they aren’t in trouble,” Senior Constable Doherty said.
      • “Changing attitudes is very important.”
      • However, at the same time, Senior Constable Doherty believes that the PCYC is not as visible as it could be and that this could be limiting its effectiveness.
    Senior Constable Doherty is marketing the services of the Bathurst PCYC to the wider community. He believes, and I do not disagree with him, that it should be the top youth service in a country town. He has plans to open a youth drop-in centre next year where local kids can hang out in a safe and drug-free environment. This is critically important to keep kids away from an element that might lead them into trouble. It is this interaction by committed police officers such as Senior Constable Doherty through police and community youth clubs that are having an important impact on young lives in Bathurst. It underpins what a great and valuable assets PCYCs are to our communities and how they are benefiting from the restructure by the Minister. I am sure all members in this House join in congratulating Senior Constable Doherty on his prestigious award.

Golfing Link To Departed Dad

Illawarra Mercury

Wednesday October 24, 2007

By COURTNEY TRENWITH

BARRY Doherty has found the ultimate way to remember his late dad each year – with a round of their favourite game, golf.

And while he’s swinging his sticks through the 18-hole course at Illawarra Country Golf Club, he’s also raising money to find a cure for the disease that killed his father -cancer.

Mr Doherty has participated in the annual Doherty and Doherti Memorial Golf Day since it started five years ago in memory of Ted Doherty and Joe Doherty, both police officers who died from cancer.

Ted Doherty was just 58 years old and barely into his retirement when he died from lung cancer in 1999.

Barry Doherty, from Mt Ousley, said the memorial golf day was a fitting way to remember his dad, who was a keen golfer before he died.

Ted Doherty had been a member of a group of police officers who played golf on the first Monday of each month, which they dubbed Destress Golf Day.

“It’s good memories because I used to play with dad in the Destress Day,” said Mr Doherty, who is also a police officer.

“It’s good that we can go as a memorial for dad and Joe, but it’s also sad too because it brings back memories.”

Ted Doherty’s grandsons Craig, 18, and Brad, 15, also get involved in the memorial day as caddies.

The event has so far raised more than $30,000 towards cancer research and Mr Doherty expected this year to be the biggest yet. Tee-off is at 7am on Monday following a barbecue breakfast.

Play costs $50 per person.

Rare light-hearted moment for rescue squad mates

Author: By MICHELLE WEBSTER

Illawarra Mercury
Section: News
Page: 6

IT takes a certain kind of strength to cope with the unique demands of being in the Illawarra’s police rescue unit.Often first on the scene at devastating accidents and horrific tragedies, no-one could argue that the men and women of rescue have one of the toughest jobs in the force.

Yesterday around 40 past and present Illawarra police rescue officers gathered at Wollongong’s Flagstaff Hill for a rare reunion to compare notes and take a walk down memory lane.

A member of the original 10-man Illawarra squad formed in the early ’70s, retired Sergeant John Byers was thrilled to catch up with former colleagues.

A 28-year rescue veteran, Mr Byers said the lifelong bonds formed between squad members helped the officers cope with the often heavy emotional burdens.

“It’s a job where you form very close associations with your mates because you’re in some interesting situations. A lot of times it’s dangerous but there’s also a lot of times where you see things which are unpalatable,” he said.

“It’s something you need to put your heart and soul into really.”

Taking the reins from Mr Byers in 1996, Illawarra Police Rescue Unit commander Sgt Manni Verzosa has held the top job for more than 14 years.

“It’s a passion, none of these people would be here if they didn’t have that passion,” he said.

The absence of rescue squad founding boss Chief Inspector Ted Doherty weighed heavily on his former colleagues, who spoke fondly of a man passionate about saving the lives of others.

Chief Insp Doherty lost a two-year battle with cancer in 1999, at the age of 58.

Squad co-founder, retired Senior Sergeant E.J. ‘Ted’ Beaver, who travelled from Maitland to reminisce and meet newer members, said the job had changed little since his time.

The group ended the reunion with a barbecue and a tour of the new police Lake Illawarra command headquarters at Oak Flats.
