Sam Bass was my father. I just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know of his passing and how much this group meant to him.
Last Sunday dad lost a battle he had been fighting and took his own life.
Anyone that knew Dad knew him as a lovable goofball with a giant heart that would give you the shirt of his own back.
Unfortunately, now one of the most beautiful and helpful human beings I’ve had the pleasure of knowing didn’t reach out for help when he needed it most.
My sister and I both served, and along with everyone in this group I’m sure we’ve all had more than our fair share of Friends lost to mental illness. I can tell you nothing I’ve experienced yet hits you quite like when it’s your father.
It’s ok to not be ok.
Please, please, please ask your mates how they’re doing, know YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and reach out to someone when you need.
Given the current circumstances we won’t be holding a funeral as such. Rather Sam will be cremated and once life is a bit less COVID crazy we scatter his ashes in Shoal Bay some time next year. Anyone is welcome.
Thanks to everyone in this group for allowing me to post and know that he loved you all and was on here multiple times a day.
Please feel free to send me a message on here if you feel you need and I’ll let everyone know more about the final goodbye when we do.
BASS, Dennis James Of Nelson Bay

VALE : Leslie Raymond Doole, 78 yrs of Brewarrina. A NSW Police Aboriginal Liaison Officer for many years in that community. Les was a big man with a big heart & worked tirelessly in his role to improve outcomes for his community.
Police loved & respected Les for his compassion, big heart, common sense & ability to teach young Police of the history, challenges, difficulties & risks to Aboriginal communities, & the ‘art’ of Policing & serving in Aboriginal Communities.
As a consequence of Les’ long service & role he played in that community, he was viewed in awe by Police Commissioners. Innumerable members of his community, young & old, were the benefactors of positive outcomes after interaction with Police.
Importantly, the positive outcomes facilitated by Les in his role, often led to many life journeys by young Aboriginals, fulfilling their potential & dreams. Les, R.I.P., & be assured you made an amazing difference for your community, particularly the young.
You also made a significant contribution to NSW Police & the 100’s of young officers you nurtured, educated & worked side by side with. You were an amazing man, an amazing Aboriginal leader & will not be forgotten.
There are many who could & need to learn from you, even now Les, perhaps, EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY NOW ! #Austpol

Graeme, it was great working with you at Dubbo, in my role as the communications technical officer. The big search around Goodooga comes to mind. It heightened my existing respect for you, your decision making, your concern for the welfare of other police in the search and especially your devilish sense of humour. RIP, mate.

SYDNEY, Thursday. — Central Criminal Court was told today that a youth had killed his mother by shooting her through the back of her head for no apparent reason.
Robert George McAlister, 17, of Blowering Road, Tumut, pleaded not guilty to murder but guilty to manslaughter. The Crown accepted the plea to the lesser charge.
Detective Sergeant G. C. Rooskov, of Tumut, said McAlister had gone to the Tumut Police Station at 1pm on August 7 last year and said he had shot his mother. Sergeant Rooskov said McAlister, then 16, had shown no emotion while telling his story.
McAlister had said that after he had dug up a rabbit burrow, his mother had told him to return the spade to his aunt. As she was walking away he had shot her through the head.
Sergeant Rooskov said McAlister was a member of the Young Anglicans Fellowship, a member of a tight-knit and happy family, and an average student.
Mr Justice O’Brien remanded McAlister for sentence.
