The Australian Federal Police was today informed of the death of former Commissioner Major General Ronald Alwyn Grey AO DSO (Retd)Major General Grey was appointed as the second Commissioner of the AFP in February 1983 after a distinguished 35-year career in the Australian Defence Force.

Major General Grey played a significant role in expanding the AFP’s International Liaison Network from four to 12 countries during his tenure. The network now has AFP representatives in 33 countries and continues to play an important part in the AFP’s mission to combat serious organised crime.

Major General Grey endorsed a drive to modernise police methodology, with his term as Commissioner including the introduction of significant legislative reforms in the areas of telephone interceptions, proceeds of crime and cash transaction reports. The AFP undertook Operation Lavender during his tenure, a drug seizure that culminated in the arrest of 20 offenders in August 1985 and the dismantling of a major criminal enterprise involved in drug trafficking.

Major General Grey also led significant reforms in ACT Policing which resulted in reductions in property-related crime and the expansion of the Neighbourhood Watch program.

AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw said Major General Grey was critical in leading the early development of the AFP into the world-leading law enforcement agency it is today. He served five years as Commissioner during the organisation’s formative years.

“It was during his tenure that the AFP significantly expanded the number of officers in offshore liaison roles to better combat the criminal threats targeting our country, and his emphasis on the value of criminal intelligence to target organised crime is a legacy that continues to this day.

“The AFP and Australia owes Major General Grey a great deal of thanks for ensuring the safety of the community we live and work in.

“I extend our condolences to Major General Grey’s family at this sad time, but also our appreciation for everything he did for this country throughout his accomplished career.”

Major General Ronald Alwyn Grey, AO, DSO (2 July 1930 – 20 January 2022) was a senior Australian Army officer who served as Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police (1983–88).

Military career

Grey served in the Australian Army from 1950 to 1983, attaining the rank of major general in 1978. During his career he served in Borneo, Korea, and Vietnam.[1]

Grey was Mentioned in Despatches in recognition of gallant and distinguished conduct in the Borneo Territories during the period 24 December 1965 to 23 June 1966.[2]

He was awarded the Distinguished Service Order in 1971 for his role as the Commanding Officer of 7th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment in Vietnam,[3] and was also awarded the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm.[1]

Gen R.A.Grey, DSO, MID

57011 Lieutenant Colonel Ronald Alwyn GREY

Distinguished Service Order (DSO)

Lieutenant Colonel Ronald Grey graduated from the Royal Military College on 12 December 1951 and was allotted to the Royal Australian Infantry. After a number of staff and regimental appointments both in Australia and overseas, he was appointed on 25 November 1968 as Commanding Officer, 7th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment and arrived in Vietnam on 23 February 1970.

Lieutenant Colonel Grey has commanded his Battalion with distinction during its tour of duty in Vietnam. His tactical application together with his personal knowledge of the capacity of his officers, junior leaders and his soldiers, have enabled him to gain the maximum result from his force at all times.

From 3 August 1970 until 10 September 1970, Lieutenant Colonel Grey’s Battalion was engaged in Operation Cung Chung II in Southern Phuoc Tuy Province. Lieutenant Colonel Grey’s skilful and tenacious handling of the force in all areas allotted to him caused the enemy to lose control of the population centres in the 7th Battalion area.

Following a sub?unit contact on 30 December 1970, Lieutenant Colonel Grey rapidly redeployed elements of his force to cover probable enemy withdrawal routes. This timely action together with his knowledge of the enemy, the terrain and his force’s capabilities subsequently caused a major defeat to be inflicted on an enemy unit from which it is unlikely to recover for some time.

His tireless energy, devotion to duty, personal courage and tactical skill have shown him to be an outstanding Commander and his leadership of the Battalion has been in the highest tradition of his Regiment and the Australian Army.

Car vandals’ busy Sunday morning in the south

A series of about 20 automobile offences in Canberra’s south which were committed early on Sunday morning have prompted the Australian Federal Police to warn motorists to hide or remove any removable fixtures from their cars to discourage thieves.

In Waramanga early Sunday morning, 14 automobiles had windows smashed, and two had property stolen from inside.

During the same period, six vehicles had petrol syphoned from them in Wanniassa, and two cars were stolen from Oxley and later recovered in Isabella Plains. Both cars had been stripped and vandalised.

Acting Inspector Terry Paff said that the offenders were probably in their late teens, and were stealing items for their own use.

He said there had been 1063 car-related crimes in Canberra between July 1986 and February this year, and that the increase in car crime was a result of a shift in crime trends away from burglaries as a result of Neighbourhood Watch.

He said that a special effort in the form of extra manpower was being made by police in an attempt to discourage thefts, but that it was ultimately up to car owners to secure their vehicles.

People with confidential information regarding automobile offences were asked to contact police on 497444.

One dead, one saved in fire

By JULIEANNE BASHAM

A woman died and a man was rescued by two policemen in a house fire in Melba yesterday.

The two policemen are to be recommended for a commendation.

Constable Terry Paff and Constable Neil Palmer, on the 10pm to 6am shift, were on patrol when, just after 5am, they noticed smoke billowing up from a high-density housing area in Melba.

” Terry notified Operations [ that ] we could see smoke and we headed in that direction “, Constable Palmer said yesterday. ” As we neared the area we could see clouds of black smoke issuing into the air.

” We arrived at the house in Boult Place and saw that the lounge-room area was gutted and we could hear the roof starting to collapse as we pulled up “.

They went to the front right-hand side of the house and smashed a window to get in. They went into what was the main bedroom of the house, which by then was full of thick, black smoke, forcing them to turn back.

While Constable Paff went to the front door and kicked it in, Constable Palmer went to the rear of the house, pulled up a barbecue skew and smashed a window which led to the back bedroom.

The main force of the fire was contained in the lounge room of the house. Constables Palmer and Paff heard the roof begin to collapse when they arrived. The body of the woman was later found in a corner of the room.

” I jumped up on the window sill and through the smoke saw what appeared to be a form lying on the bed “, Constable Palmer said.

He yelled at the person that the house was on fire, and to ” get out ” but the person ” did not answer or move “.

” I picked up an object from a bench and threw it at the person and again yelled to get out.

” At this stage he said, ‘ What the hell is going on ‘ … as the man came towards me I pulled him through the window.

” As I was helping him through the window I heard the fire brigade start up “.

The man, Mr John Mordaunt, of Hackett, in his early 40s, had told him that there was a woman in the house.

” I went to the front of the house and saw that Terry was all right, but as we could not get into the main lounge room we had to give up our search for anyone else in the house “, he said.

” We think that the chap was only saved because the door to his bedroom had been closed and a vacuum had been created in the loungeroom. During the entire time we heard the sounds of the roof collapsing.

” The woman was later found in a corner of the loungeroom “.

Police will not issue the name of the woman, identified as Mr Mordaunt’s de-facto wife, until all relatives had been informed.

Constable Palmer had been taken to the Royal Canberra Hospital with a sprained ankle but was later allowed home. Constable Paff and Mr Mordaunt were not injured.

Chief Inspector Max Bradley, Officer in Charge of Belconnen police station, praised the action of his two officers. They had demonstrated outstanding dedication to duty, spotting the fire and responding to it.

” But for their courage in entering the blazing town house there could well have been another life lost “, he said.

” I will be recommending to the commissioner that they receive some appropriate commendation in recognition of their action “.

Belconnen detectives are carrying out an investigation into the fire, the cause of which is not yet known. Police said there were no suspicious

circumstances.

Firemen from the Charnwood and Belconnen brigades extinguished the fire in 15 minutes.

Two dogs also perished.

The dog was friendly and playful and stayed for most of the afternoon while policemen decided what to do. It was taken to the pound and can be claimed by telephoning the dog inspectors of the Department of the Capital Territory on 462157.

Vale: Sergeant Christopher John Bird (AFP 7512)

It was with much sadness we received news today of the passing of Detective Sergeant Chris Bird after a protracted battle with cancer.

Birdy joined the job as an investigator in Sydney Office and for many years has been a fixture in ACT Policing. With a passion for uniform policing and bomb response he has been a mate to many and will be sorely missed.

We here at the AFPA have been proud to support Birdy and his family and our thoughts go out to Tracy and their kids at this difficult time.

The Story

Chris Bird is a husband, a father to three kids and he is our mate.

Birdy, as he is well known around the AFP, is a Detective Sergeant in ACT Policing as well as a long serving member of the Bomb Response Team and the Disaster Victim Identification Team. In Birdy’s 25 years with the AFP he has worked nationally internationally and within community Policing. He’s been involved in major events including a number of overseas deployments and is well respected by anyone who has had the pleasure to work with him.

He’s been the bloke to turn up and help others in their time of need and now it’s time for us to help him. Birdy has dedicated the past 25 years to the AFP and now he and his family could do with your help.

In November 2014 Birdy was diagnosed with bowel cancer. In December 2014 and April 2015 Birdy had surgery and since then has undergone regular treatment including chemotherapy and radiation. He has battled his illness with dignity and courage and continues to work operationally despite his illness (albiet with a few days off each fortnight for treatment). Unfortunately in recent months he has been advised that his cancer is now stage 4 and terminal.

With all the positivity and dignity in the world, Birdy has continued to fight hard however his treatment is expensive and financially taxing.

The costs, both monetary and emotionally are taking their toll on the family. We want to raise money so the family have options as treatment gets more expensive. We want to raise money to relieve the bills that are piling up and give the Bird family quality time together, whether that means a trip away or money for whatever they choose when their income and more is being taken in treatment costs.

Please get behind this very dignified, proud (he hates we are doing this but we’ve told him to shut up!), resilient, caring mate of ours.

Thank you in advance!

Message from Birdy’s wife Tracy
************************
Many times in life it becomes extremely difficult to put into words exactly what you feel or what you want to say, now is one of those times.
The kids and I have always known how amazing Chris is and it has truly lifted our spirits seeing that so many others feel the same. We know that the times ahead are going to be rough in so many different ways, but the support, comments, donations, offers of help and all round kindness shown to us has helped us see we are not on our own.
It is daunting and heartbreaking to recognise how often time was taken for granted and the list of things that had been put off for a more convenient time. Then to be given the opportunity from others to escape this craziness for a little while, reduce some of the everyday stressors and to utilise the chance to just be together, is a gift I don’t know how to ever repay.
Time and Friends are precious commodities and we cherish them both
Thankyou

Man caught trying to beak into cars in Gungahlin apartment complex

Date: July 29 2015
Police arrested a man in a Gungahlin underground car park on Tuesday night after he was caught trying to break into cars.

ACT Policing said officers found the 35-year-old Scullin man hiding in a service area of an apartment complex on Gungahlin Place after a member of the public reported suspicious behaviour about 11.15pm.

The man was found with tools and items suspected to be stolen.

He was taken to Gungahlin Police Station and later charged with trespassing, going equipped for theft, possessing stolen property, providing a false name and attempting to escape custody.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court on Wednesday afternoon.

Gungahlin acting station sergeant Chris Bird praised the actions of the member of the public who called police.

“This person did the right thing – they saw something that looked suspicious and they called the police,” he said.

“Often people will assume that someone else will do something, but this person took it upon themselves to take action.

“If you see someone who looks suspicious, loitering near cars or looking into vehicles, someone you don’t usually see in your complex, then call the police.”

Sergeant Bird urged Canberrans to report car break-ins to police on 131 444, even if the car was unlocked or nothing was stolen.

Police have urged anyone who may have seen the incident in Gungahlin to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au

Information can be provided anonymously.

Woman robbed of handbag; witnesses sought

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a robbery that occurred in Gungahlin this morning (Monday, 20 July).

Around 9am a woman was walking towards the Big W loading dock (opposite a public car park) in Gungahlin when a male person ran up behind her and grabbed her handbag.

A brief struggle occurred with the male threatening the woman before fleeing the scene with the woman’s handbag.  He was last seen getting into a dark coloured vehicle, which sped off erratically turning left off The Valley Way and onto Gungahlin Drive.

Acting Station Sergeant Chris Bird from Gungahlin Station said this incident was a cowardly attack.

“ACT Policing treats all robberies seriously, but this type of incident where a member of the public is going about her daily business and is confronted in such a cowardly manner is disturbing. We’re calling on the public’s assistance to help us identify the offender,” Acting Station Sergeant Bird said.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously. We remind people they should not report crime information via our Facebook and Twitter pages.
