Deepest condolences to Randalls wife – Janean, family and friends.

 


 

My husband Sergeant Randal Moulden was one of those officers that tragically took his own life on Tuesday 29th June 2021.
He couldn’t carry the pain of the trauma of what he had experienced over the 30yrs as a serving Police officer.
He was one of a kind, Professional, Caring, Empathetic, Understanding, Passionate. These traits that not only I as a wife, but his children, his friends, his colleagues are what we loved about him.
Regardless of what he had seen, experienced and witnessed.
Every day that he put on his uniform he wore it with pride, dignity and grace, ultimately it was these traits as a serving officer that made him suffer.
To EVERYONE I can not stress this enough, PLEASE, PLEAS,E PLEASE, get help.
There is ABSOLUTELY no shame in reaching out.
As partners we are here to support, to love and to comfort those suffering. Your burden is our burden to share.
Don’t let this tragedy be in vain, lets learn from it and try to change it as death is never the answer.
To all the people that have shared their respect and Grief, there are not enough words to thank you.
Mrs Janean Moulden, Phillip Moulden, Grace Moulden.

Randall Moulden: Wife of cop who took own life says WA Police, State Govt still not providing enough support

Daryna Zadvirna The West Australian

Randall Moulden was a larrikin, the “fun” parent and so dedicated to his job as a WA Police officer, he literally gave his life to the role, according to his widow Janean.

She recently commemorated one year since her husband died by suicide on June 29 by spreading his ashes across the desert in Morocco.

WA Police officer’s widow fights for ‘life-changing’ counselling service to stay open

Posted

Janean Moulden remembers her husband Randall as a “born police officer”.

“He was kind, considerate, compassionate, empathetic, respectful to everyone around him,” said Ms Moulden to ABC Radio Perth’s Nadia Mitsopoulos.

“He was a mate who was approachable.

“You could talk to him about anything. He loved his job, he thrived with his job.”

But in 2014, during a posting in Kalgoorlie, Randall Moulden attended a car crash in which a mother and three young children were killed and when he returned home, Ms Moulden said he appeared deeply traumatised.

“He was just blank the entire night,” she said.

“I had coppers ring me the next day to tell me how graphic and horrendous it was out there.

“He became very withdrawn. I just couldn’t help him.”

Finding helpful support

It was not until January 2016 that Mr Moulden realised he needed help and started seeing a counsellor employed by WA Police.

“Then in the August, the counsellor said, ‘I can’t help you. You need medication,'” Ms Moulden said.

“He just felt like it was just a horrible thing to say, you know?

“So then he was just sort of left stranded.”

It wasn’t until he found Soldiers and Sirens, a free not-for-profit service for veterans and first-responders, that Mr Moulden’s health began to improve.

The service was co-founded by Danielle Baldock, a psychologist and former police officer who felt there was a gap in support for police and other emergency services staff.

“There was no service for first responders that was independent and external and confidential,” Ms Baldock said.

“One of the big concerns that officers have is that if they go to their internal support it might limit their career in some way.

“That’s not a reality, it’s more of a perception. The WA Police psych unit is amazing — they do great work.”

Ms Baldock said because police officers were often hesitant to seek counselling through their workplace she was motivated to provide external support.

“We wanted to provide this separate space where they could come together and be a community,” she said.

‘A massive improvement’

Ms Moulden said the counselling Soldiers and Sirens provided to both her and her husband was a godsend.

“He was doing amazing, he really was. Every time he saw Danielle he walked out with bounce in his step, a smile on his face,” she said.

“He had made such a massive change this year.”

 

Ms Moulden said the key difference was that the service was independent and staffed by people who had lived experience in emergency services.

“It’s the essential ingredient. You cannot speak to someone who does not have a clue about trauma,” she said.

“And there is a genuine fear out there.

“I’ve spoken to many police officers and they all say the same thing, that they would not go to the police psychiatrist or the police doctor — not when the commissioner is in the same building. You can’t be honest.”

Funding discontinued

Soldiers and Sirens received initial start-up funding from the federal Department of Communities as well as bulk-billing fees from Medicare and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

 However, at the end of June the federal funding ended and has not been renewed.

“We were hoping in the time that we could fundraise, that we could apply for the grants and get some funding from somewhere,” Ms Baldock said.

“But unfortunately, with the COVID situation, we just haven’t been able to secure any further funding.

“So on the first of August we shut our doors.”

Service closure ‘daunting’

Ms Moulden said the news that the service was closing devastated her husband as he faced the prospect of having to re-tell his story to a new psychologist.

“He had built a rapport with Danielle and that’s half the key,” she said.

“The thought of going to another psychologist is daunting; you’ve got to keep reliving it. It’s cruel.”

In June, Mr Moulden died by suicide.

His death has motivated his wife to fight for funding for the Soldiers and Sirens service.

“I know that he would want me to speak up [and] speak about my own experience,” Ms Moulden said.

“Not just for me, but for anyone suffering. He would want me to be their voice.”

Request for state funding

Soldiers and Sirens is now hoping the WA state government will provide the additional funding needed for the service to remain accessible.

“We want there to be no barriers to entry,” Ms Baldock said.

“[So] that you can ring up and get an appointment straight away within a couple of weeks without lots of triage barriers in the way, and we really wanted it to be free.

“WA Police are amazing. They paid for all of the sessions for their officers. We were also cost-recovering from Medicare and DVA and the places that we could, but unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough to sustain us.”

In a statement, Minister for Police Paul Papalia said the WA government provided funding to the WA Police Force for “a range of wraparound services through the Health and Welfare Division”.

“In addition to internal outreach services which include 24/7 access to on-call clinical psychologists and chaplains, officers are able to access private psychological and psychiatric support services from a network of external providers,” the statement said.

“Soldiers and Sirens is one of a number of those approved external providers which police officers are able to access.”

Cop refused to seek WA Police force’s help before taking own life

By Aaron Bunch

 

 

A WA Police officer who took his own life after becoming disillusioned with his job had refused to undertake mental health counselling with the force for fear his reputation would be tarnished, an inquest has heard.

Senior Constable Cameron Fyfe died at home on June 20, 2021 after drinking heavily amid bouts of depression following a series of on-the-job incidents that threatened his safety.

The 27-year-old was prescribed antidepressant medication, which he took irregularly, and his family and friends had made numerous pleas for him to seek mental health support after he told his father he was having suicidal thoughts.

“Mr Fyfe made it clear to his loved ones that he did not want to involve the police force in pursuing any mental health assistance,” counsel assisting Sarah Tyler told the Coroner’s Court of Western Australia on Tuesday.

Fyfe’s father suggested reaching out to the police employee assistance program. Fyfe refused, saying there was a stigma attached to doing so.

The constable did, however, tell his family that he was seeing a psychologist, who diagnosed him with major depression.

It came after a series of incidents that left Fyfe questioning whether he wanted to remain a member of the force, including responding to the death of a baby, and a family violence incident where he was hit in the face.

“The person said to have struck Mr Fyfe was found not guilty after trial,” Tyler told State Coroner Rosalinda Fogliani.

In November 2020, the officer was spat on as he attempted to arrest an offender.

“Saliva entered Mr Fyfe’s mouth,” Tyler said.

He was forced to undergo blood screen testing and quarantined for two weeks due to COVID-19 laws amid the global pandemic.

“While quarantined, Mr Fyfe (again) expressed to his family his disillusionment with the police force,” Tyler said.

On the evening of June 19, 2021, Fyfe drank whiskey alone at his home while exchanging text messages with his parents, his girlfriend and ex-partner.

In the early hours of the next morning, he told his father that he’d stopped taking his antidepressant medication because it impacted his libido.

Fyfe then sent a message to his mother saying he couldn’t live his life on medication.

The next morning, his parents and partner sent messages to Fyfe, but he did not respond.

By the afternoon, Fyfe’s parents drove to their son’s home address, and his father used his key to go inside.

He found Fyfe’s lifeless body in his computer gaming chair in his study.

A post-mortem showed very high levels of alcohol in Fyfe’s system.

A police investigation did not identify any evidence to suggest another person was involved in the death.

During that investigation, it became apparent that the police force did not hold any information about the officer’s reported mental health issues.

The inquest continues.

Cameron Fyfe coronial inquest probes rules surrounding police gun access at home

Posted 

A coronial inquest into the suicide of a young first class constable is examining the WA Police force’s off-duty firearm access rules as well as mental health safety and support for officers.

WARNING: The following story contains details that may distress some readers.

Cameron Fyfe was 27 when he killed himself at his home in June 2021.

A coronial inquest into his death has heard Mr Fyfe had been struggling with his mental health for some time, and while he was getting support privately – including being medicated at times — he appeared to have hidden his situation from his workplace, telling his father there was a stigma attached to seeking support internally.

State Coroner ( W.A. ) Ros Fogliani is heading up the inquest at Perth Coroner’s Court, exploring specific issues including:

  • Why Mr Fyfe had access to his police issue firearm within his home while off duty, and
  • Safety considerations in the context of mental health, in relation to serving police officers having access to police issue firearms in their homes while off duty.

Counsel assisting the coroner Sarah Lynton began by giving a brief overview of Mr Fyfe‘s life, with his father Brett — who discovered his son’s body — his sister Anna and his uncle sitting in court.

Ms Lynton mentioned several incidents throughout the later years of Mr Fyfe‘s life where he had shared with family members he was struggling with his mental health.

Jobs affected wellbeing

She told the court Mr Fyfe attended confronting jobs throughout his work, one of significance being the death of a baby and another where he was struck in the face when attending a family violence incident.

The court was told that in 2017, Mr Fyfe told his then partner and his father he had gone to The Gap in Albany, where he was working at the time, and contemplated taking his own life.

A number of further red flags were noticed by Mr Fyfe‘s family and loved ones, including that he was experiencing sleeping difficulties and mood swings, and was drinking alcohol heavily on his rostered days off.

In 2018, when he mentioned to his partner he was considering leaving the police force, his loved ones again suggested he seek mental health support.

Ms Lynton told the court Mr Fyfe made it clear he did not want to involve his work in pursuing any mental health assistance, later telling his father there was a stigma attached.

In 2019, Mr Fyfe was assessed by his GP and prescribed antidepressant medication, which he soon stopped taking.

Then in 2020, a person spat on Mr Fyfe while he was attempting to arrest them, at which point some saliva entered his mouth.

The COVID pandemic was well underway at that time and Mr Fyfe was quarantined for two weeks, telling his family he was feeling disillusioned with the police force.

Ms Lynton said Mr Fyfe‘s father had understood that his son’s reluctance to seek assistance through the police force’s mental health support unit was due to his concerns it could see him taken off operational duties, which could affect his pay and impact his ability to cover his mortgage.

At this time, towards the end of 2020, Mr Fyfe told his dad he had been seeing a private psychologist who had diagnosed him with major depression. Medical records show he had a mental health care plan and was on medication, which he took irregularly.

Police gun taken home

In 2021, Mr Fyfe started with the Traffic Motorcycle Group, which allowed him to take his own police motorcycle home — as well as his police-issued firearm.

Ms Lynton told the court officers are occasionally allowed to keep their police-issued firearm, ammunition and other accoutrements at their home address.

She said Mr Fyfe had been drinking and communicating with friends and family on the evening of June 20, 2021 at his home.

The next day, when no-one had heard from him, his parents went to his house and discovered his body.

Toxicology analysis showed very high levels of alcohol in Mr Fyfe’s system and the forensic pathologist determined the cause of his death was a self-inflicted gunshot injury.

Stigma in seeking help

A number of police investigations have taken place since his death, including an external review into allegations Mr Fyfe might have been bullied, but nothing was substantiated.

Ms Lynton said it appeared Mr Fyfe had hidden his mental health issues from work, with no evidence of him seeking help identified in the system.

Female constable in her 20s takes her own life in regional WA

Support is being provided to the devastated family and colleagues following the tragedy.

A police officer in her 20s has taken her own life in regional Western Australia.

The young female constable was found dead in her Albany home on Wednesday, about 400km south east of Perth.

She has not yet been named.

Support is being provided to the devastated family by the WA Police Union and said they extend their “sincerest condolences to the constable’s family, friends and colleagues at this time”.

“It is with overwhelming sadness that we mourn the loss of a member of the blue family today,” the statement read.

“A serving police constable passed away this morning.”

Acting WA Police Chief Commissioner Kylie Whiteley said the death of the young officer was a “tragedy”.

“Family members and staff within the Great Southern Police District are in the process of being provided with support during this tragic time,” she wrote in a statement.

“I ask you to reach out if you need help… keep an eye on those around you and offer your personal support where needed.”

A report will be prepared by the coroner and the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Female police officer in her 20s takes her own life

 

A police officer aged in her 20s has taken her own life in regional Western Australia.

The female constable, who has not yet been named, was found dead at her home in Albany, 418km south-east of Perth, on Wednesday

The WA Police Union is providing support to the officer’s heartbroken family, colleagues and friends.

‘It is with overwhelming sadness that we mourn the loss of a member of the blue family today,’ a statement read.

‘A serving police constable passed away this morning.

‘The WA Police Union extend our sincerest condolences to the constable’s family, friends and colleagues during this time.’

In a message to police officers, Acting WA Police Commissioner Kylie Whiteley said the officer’s passing was a tragedy.

‘Family members and staff within the Great Southern Police District are in the process of being provided with support during this tragic time,’ she wrote.

‘I ask you to reach out if you need help … keep an eye on those around you and offer your personal support where needed.’

The death of the young officer is not being treated as suspicious.

A  report will be prepared for the coroner.

Several WA Police officers have taken their own lives in recent years, the West Australian reported.

In 2019, 53-year-old Senior Constable Dave Curtis took his own life.

Two years later, in mid-2021, two officers, including a sergeant who ran his own station, committed suicide within two weeks of each other.

One of those was Constable Cameron Fyfe, who was 27.

An inquest into his death held in 2023 heard that Const Fyfe hid his mental health problems from his bosses because he feared there would be repercussions if he spoke about it.

His death, and that of Sergeant Randall Moulden, led to then-police commissioner Chris Dawson to convene the first-ever police mental health forum in WA.

Anthony WOODS - Floral tribute

The POS accused of fatally running over a young police officer has admitted stealing and driving the car but denies murdering the constable, a court has heard.
Reagan Ainslie Chown, 23, faced Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court in Perth on Wednesday ( 21 Feb. 2024 ) where he pleaded guilty to driving recklessly to escape police during a pursuit in a stolen Holden Cruze.
But he pleaded not guilty to murdering Constable Anthony Woods, 28, who was allegedly struck with the car in Ascot on June 8 last year.
The officer and his colleague had pulled over the vehicle and they were trying to detain three occupants when Constable Woods was allegedly dragged underneath as the car reversed.
Constable Woods was rushed to hospital in a critical condition and died on June 11.
He became the 88th WA Police officer to lose his life in the line of duty.
Constable Woods had only been on the force for about three years and had just passed his probation when he died.
He was farewelled at Optus Stadium on July 7.
In a statement after his death, Constable Woods’ family said they were shattered.
“He was a devoted husband and loving son, brother, and uncle who was taken from this earth far too soon,” they said.
“Anthony will be remembered as a funny, hard-working man who loved the West Coast Eagles and mucking around with his mates.
“He brought light and laughter to every situation, and his wicked sense of humour is irreplaceable.
“Our pain at this time is indescribable, and we take comfort in the outpouring of love from the community.
“We ask that you keep Anthony’s memory alive by telling stories of all of your good times with him.”
Police Commissioner Col Blanch said the young officer had been trying to keep the community safe.
“It was the sort of interaction that any of our officers may encounter any given day or night of the year, reminding us of the ever-present dangers facing police officers,” he said.
Constable Woods’ name has been added to memorial wall at the WA Police Academy in Joondalup, facing the flame of remembrance.
Chown will next face the WA Supreme Court on June 10.

In Memoriam

IN MEMORIAM Constable Anthony Woods, Western Australia Police Force

 

Constable Anthony Woods succumbed to injuries suffered in the line of duty, while attending an incident in early June, in Ascot, Perth, Western Australia.

Three weeks previously, he had welcomed PolicingTV Founder, Bernard Rix, to Belmont Police Station in Perth, where they recorded this video intended to give PolicingTV viewers a detailed look behind the scenes.

Constable Woods’ family has asked that PolicingTV publish this video – today, the day of Anthony’s funeral – in his memory.

A personal statement by PolicingTV Founder, Bernard Rix:

It is with great sadness that I heard of the recent death, whilst on duty, of Western Australia Police Force’s Constable Anthony Woods.

Just last month, Anthony was chosen by the Force to provide me and PolicingTV with a guided tour of Belmont Police Station, in Perth. It was my great pleasure to film with him: he was a natural communicator, wonderfully friendly and engaging. I left Belmont that day having made a new friend, as well as with some wonderful film and memories.

My heart goes out to Anthony’s family, friends and policing colleagues. I may have met Anthony just the once, but his warmth that day made me feel I’d known him far longer. I hope this video helps bring back positive memories of a wonderful man: like so many others, I mourn his loss.

Thousands gather for funeral of police officer Anthony Woods in Perth

Thousands have gathered to honour Constable Anthony Woods after he was killed in the line of duty.

A West Australian police officer killed on duty is being laid to rest as his loved ones remember a larger-than-life character full of fun and joy.

A police funeral was held Thursday for Constable Anthony Woods, 28, who was allegedly run over by a man attempting to avoid arrest in June.

About 2000 officers and dignitaries stood in silence on Thursday as a bagpiper led the procession into a function room at Optus Stadium in Perth.

Opposition Leader Peter Dutton, WA Governor Chris Dawson, Police Commissioner Col Blanch and WA Premier Roger Cook were among the guests.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, who paid tribute to Woods in a statement as a “young man cruelly robbed of his future”, was represented by local Labor MP Zaneta Mascarenhas.

Police chaplain Paul Trimble paid tribute to the “larger-than-life” character who was full of fun and joy, but always treated others with respect.

“Anthony was in his element and wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else in that moment,” Timble told the service.

The chaplain spoke of a man who Woods had previously arrested leaving a condolence card at the station when he attended to sign in for his bail conditions, describing the officer as “a gentleman”.

In a poignant tribute, Woods’ wife Emily said she was “proud” and “so grateful for you”.

“Your love made me really strong and I’ll carry that with me every minute of every day,” she said

Woods’ older brother Nathan paid an emotional tribute, promising to live life to the fullest in his sibling’s honour.

“I’ll do my best to pick up where you left off. You’ve left a legacy and a massive imprint on this world,” he said.

“I love you bro and always will … until next time, mate.”

The service concluded with a police honour guard.

A few dozen members of the public gathered in gloomy weather to watch a livestream of proceedings outside the stadium.

Albanese said all Australians joined the officer’s family in mourning.

“He was a young man cruelly robbed of his future … an Australian who went to work and never came home,” he said.

“Like all police officers, Constable Woods knew the risks his job entailed, yet he bravely performed his duties, putting himself in harm’s way so others could be safe.”

Albanese said the hearts of all Australians went out to Woods’ wife, Emily, and his family.

“We grieve with his friends, his workmates and the broader police community, whose every member feels each loss so very deeply,” he said.

Earlier on Thursday, WA Police shared footage of Woods filmed just a month before his death.

The video was captured in May as part of a tour of Belmont Police Station as part of a series for PolicingTV.com.

“The selected footage demonstrates his professional, friendly and enthusiastic approach to the job he loved,” WA Police said.

Woods had just passed his probation with the force before he was killed, having volunteered at the PCYC before joining the police cadets in 2019 and moving into the recruit squad in 2021.

Emily has previously remembered him as a devoted husband and loving son, brother and uncle “who was taken from this Earth far too soon”.

“Anthony will be remembered as a funny, hard working man who loved the West Coast Eagles and mucking around with his mates,” she said in a statement.

“He brought light and laughter to every situation, and his wicked sense of humour is irreplaceable.”

Woods’ family was shattered by his death.

“Our pain at this time is indescribable, and we take comfort in the outpouring of love from the community,” the family said in a statement.

“We ask that you keep Anthony’s memory alive by telling stories of all of your good times with him.”

Blanch said Woods was a brave and dedicated police officer and it was a sad time for the “blue family”.

“You did your duty mate, we will remember,” he said at a press conference to announce the death.

Flags flew at half-mast at police stations across the state soon after, and Const Woods was honoured in federal parliament as someone who exemplified the values of the force.

Reagan Ainsley Chown, 23, has been charged with Woods’ murder after a vehicle with stolen number plates that he was allegedly driving hit and dragged the young officer underneath.

Chown is scheduled to next appear in court on August 30.

‘Infectious smile’: Funeral held for fallen WA cop Anthony Woods

The wife of a police officer killed while on duty has recounted the day they cried “happy tears” when he was accepted as a police cadet.

 

Hundreds of police officers and dignitaries from all branches of emergency services have filed into Perth’s Optus Stadium for the funeral of Constable Anthony Woods.

The 28-year-old died in hospital on June 11, four days after he was allegedly run down and dragged by a car during an early morning vehicle stop in the inner-east Perth suburb of Ascot.

Mourners braved a chilly, overcast Perth morning as they waited to be let into the private service on Thursday, the facade of Optus Stadium illuminated in blue lights.

Although the forecast called for a high chance of rain, it graciously held off as uniformed officers, some donning their full dress uniform, entered the stadium.

Police commissioners from across the nation were in attendance.

Queensland Police Service also paid tribute to the fallen constable on social media.

“Today, we are thinking of our (WA Police) colleagues as they farewell Constable Woods. With Honour He Served,” it posted on Twitter on Thursday morning.

Even Anthony Albanese posted a tribute to Constable Woods ahead of the service.

“Like all police officers, Constable Woods knew the risks the job entailed, yet he bravely performed his duties, putting himself in harm’s way so others could be safe,” the Prime Minister said in a statement.

Representatives from the Australian Defence Force and St John Ambulance also headed inside as invited guests, joined by family and friends of the late Constable Woods.

Outside, members of the public gathered to watch the service in the BHP Amphitheatre, which features a large screen normally used for broadcasting whatever sporting event is taking place inside the venue at the time.

Those in attendance included WA Governor, former police commissioner, Chris Dawson, Police Commissioner Col Blanch, Premier Roger Cook and his Police Minister Paul Papalia, and Federal Opposition Leader and former Queensland police officer Peter Dutton.

Mr Albanese was represented by member for Swan Zaneta Mascarenhas, while WA’s National and Liberal parties were represented by Shane Love and Peter Collier respectively.

 

Eulogies during the service were delivered by Constable Woods’ brother Nathan, his mother Natalie, wife Emily, childhood mates, and colleagues from the Belmont Police Station, where the constable had been posted since December.

Nathan said his brother should have been the one speaking “in the limelight, in his element, making you smile”.

Constable Woods’ “infectious smile,” as his mother described it, continued to pop up in the eulogies.

“You may now have been able to live the longest life, but you lived a full one,” Nathan said.

Adolescent friends Max and Jacob fondly remembered their mate, known to them by his nickname “Fumbles”.

“He is someone who deserve better, and I’ll miss him every day,” Max said.

Belmont Police Station colleagues Shaun and James touched on “Woodsy’s” less-than-perfect driving ability and elicited laughs from the audience when they told of the time he accidentally “tasered the floor”.

But they also praised the quality of his police work.

Mum Natalie said in death her son “has been given angel wings and a golden heart”.

But perhaps most touching was the eulogy given by Constable Woods’ wife Emily.

“You cried all through our wedding vows while I was dry-eyed and professional, so I think it’s only fair that it’s my turn to cry in public,” she said.

She told the story of how they received the news Constable Woods had been accepted in the police cadet program while out grocery shopping and had held each other and cried happy tears in the middle of the store.

“We spent 95 per cent of the day doubled over in laughter, loving each other and planning our future,” Ms Woods said.

“Nothing in the world will replace the comfort and love you gave me.”

The service ended with the hundreds of police officers gathered forming an honour guard outside the stadium, where Mr Blanch radioed every officer statewide, calling on them to stand if they were able to have a minute’s silence for their fallen colleague.

Those driving were ordered to pull over, activate their emergency lights, and leave their vehicles for the minute.

Constable Woods’ body was taken to Karrakatta Cemetery, where he will be cremated.

The funeral comes just a day after the man allegedly responsible for running down Constable Woods, Reagan Chown, fronted Perth’s Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court.

The 23-year-old appeared on a charge of murder, upgraded in the wake of Constable Woods’ death.

Mr Chown’s was adjourned until August 30 when he’ll appear on all charges relating to the alleged incident.

Police say Mr Chown was behind the wheel of a car that bore stolen number plates when it was pulled over by Constable Woods and his partner about 1am on June 8.

As the officers tried to apprehend three people in the vehicle, Mr Chown allegedly reversed over Constable Woods and dragged him some distance, causing him catastrophic injuries.

Other officers arrived and they had to lift the vehicle off Constable Woods and perform CPR until paramedics arrived.

Mr Chown is the first person to be charged over the alleged killing of a WA police officer in the line of duty in 16 years since Constable Damien Murphy was run down by an unlicensed driver in 2007.

His killer was later jailed on a charge of manslaughter.

Constable Woods is the 88th WA Police officer to die in the line of duty.

WA Police officer Constable Anthony Woods dies in hospital after allegedly being run over during arrest

A man accused of killing a police officer has now had his charges upgraded, after thousands mourn the young constable with a “cheeky grin”.

A man who allegedly ran over and killed a West Australian police officer is now facing a murder charge.

Constable Anthony Woods, 28, died in hospital on Sunday night, four days after he was allegedly dragged under a car in Ascot in east Perth during an arrest.

WA Police Commissioner Col Blanch said the man in custody over the incident, Reagan Ainsley Chown, would have his charges upgraded.

On Tuesday, police revealed the 23-year-old had officially been charged with murder.

Mr Chown initially appeared in court on Friday and made no application for bail on a number of charges, including causing grievous bodily harm while trying to avoid arrest.

He appeared in court again on Tuesday via videolink from Hakea Prison on the murder charge. He did not apply for bail and will appear in Stirling Gardens Magistrate in July.

Flags were flown at half mast outside the WA Police headquarters and at police stations across WA on Monday.

WA Police Commissioner Col Blanch revealed on Monday that Constable Woods had just finished his probation prior to the tragic incident.

He described the young officer as someone who liked to joke with friends and colleagues at Belmont police station.

“We spoke about his cheeky grin and the pranks that he pulled,” Mr Blanch said.

“He had a bubbly personality, he was very personable, he was well loved by all.

“Anthony was a brave and dedicated police officer. You did your duty mate. We will remember.”

Mr Blanch said a full police funeral would be offered to Constable Woods’ family, who shared a tribute to the late officer on Monday.

In a statement, Constable Woods’ family said they were shattered by the loss of their “dear Anthony”.

“He (Mr Woods) was a devoted husband and loving son, brother, and uncle who was taken from this earth far too soon,” they said.

“Anthony will be remembered as a funny, hard working man who loved the West Coast Eagles and mucking around with his mates.

“He brought light and laughter to every situation, and his wicked sense of humour is irreplaceable.

“Our pain at this time is indescribable, and we take comfort in the outpouring of love from the community.

“We ask that you keep Anthony‘s memory alive by telling stories of all of your good times with him.”

On Sunday, WA Police said in a statement: “Constable Anthony Woods exemplified the values of the WA Police Force.

“His is memory will be forever etched in our hearts.

“We extend heartfelt condolences to Anthony’s family, colleagues and all those who knew and loved him.”

Constable Woods and his partners were following a vehicle with allegedly stolen plates about 1am on Thursday.

The vehicle came to a stop on Ascot Place before police approached the vehicle and the three people inside.

It is alleged the car suddenly reversed while police were dealing with the driver.

“He (Constable Woods) has subsequently been pinned by that vehicle,” Mr Blanch said.

“His partner then had a desperate few minutes to not only put three suspects into custody inside that vehicle but also try to save the life of his partner.”

Other officers arrived soon after and rushed to assist.

Police used a nearby resident’s car-jack to lift the car off Constable Woods before performing CPR.

Constable Woods was resuscitated before being rushed to hospital soon after in a critical condition.

Constable Woodsdeath marks the 88th police officer in the state to die in the line of duty.

WA Premier Roger Cook took to social media to share his condolences to the force.

Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch - WAPol
Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch said the car suddenly reversed while police were dealing with the driver.

“I am devastated by the horrific events that occurred last week resulting in the death of one of our police officers,” Mr Cook said.

“Actions like these are senseless – and going to work should be safe.

“I know I speak on behalf of everyone in WA, in sending our love and thoughts to Anthony’s family, friends and colleagues. His life was dedicated to making our state a safer place for West Australians.

“He is to be commended on his dedication and bravery.”

Perth Mayor Basil Zempilas said on Sunday the Council House would be lit blue to honour Constable Woods.

“We remember his bravery and mourn his loss,” Mr Zempilas said.

“Our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

“Our city has lost a hero.”

City of Gosnells councillor and former police officer Glenn Dewhurst also paid his respects.

“Even though I have been out of the force for some time, it still hits home when one of your own loses their life,” he said.

“God bless you – your family and friends and your colleagues past and present.”

Police said the vehicle’s other two occupants, a 20-year-old woman and 25-year-old man, had been released pending further investigation.

Accused cop killer in court one day before Constable Anthony Woods’ funeral

The man accused of fatally running down a police officer made a brief appearance in court just a day before his alleged victim is farewelled.

 

The man accused of fatally running down a West Australian police officer has briefly appeared in court the day before his alleged victim is farewelled in a massive service.

Constable Anthony Woods will be honoured in a private funeral service at Optus Stadium on Thursday, expected to be attended by thousands of his fellow officers.

The 28-year-old’s life support was switched off four days after suffering catastrophic injuries after allegedly being backed over and dragged by a car he and his partner had stopped in the inner-eastern Perth suburb of Ascot in the early hours of June 8.

The man allegedly behind the wheel of the vehicle, Reagan Ainsley Chown, had his case briefly heard in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old appeared via video link from Hakea Prison in his first appearance in Stirling Gardens following appearances in Perth Magistrates Court, where he had his charges upgraded to murder.

He’s also facing a number of drugs charges as well as reckless driving to escape pursuit by police and driver of a vehicle failed to comply with a direction to stop (circumstance of aggravation), which also relate to the June 8 incident.

His matter was adjourned to August 30 when all of his charges, including the count of murder, will be heard together.

During the fatal incident, Constable Woods and his partner had been trying to detain three people in the stopped vehicle, which allegedly bore stolen number plates, when it allegedly reversed and struck Constable Woods.

Other officers arrived and had to lift the car off the critically injured constable, performing CPR until paramedics arrived.

WA Police Commissioner Col Blanch previously spoke about visiting Constable Woods’ colleagues at Belmont Police Station in the days following his death.

“We spoke about his cheeky grin and the pranks that he pulled,” Mr Blanch said.

“He had a bubbly personality, he was very personable, he was well loved by all.

“Anthony was a brave and dedicated police officer. You did your duty mate. We will remember.”

In a statement following his death, Constable Woods’ family said they were shattered by the loss of their “dear Anthony”.

‘He loved us so much’: Son of WA cop who took his own life speaks out

Senior Constable Dave Curtis was the sort of cop who would consistently reach out to other officers going through a tough time.

Affectionately known as ‘DC’ by colleagues, he would routinely get in touch with fellow officers who’d been assaulted on the job, making sure they were okay.

He was also known to speak at various police-related and other community events over the years without a microphone – such was the power of his booming voice.

It always got people’s attention.

But Senior Constable Curtis – who first joined WA Police as a cadet in November 1982 – stunned his fellow officers and family by taking his own life in January.

He was just 53.

“The last time we saw one another was at my son’s belated birthday party the weekend before,” his son John Curtis said.

“At the time, he seemed deflated.

“You always offer some assistance or some time to talk, but in this particular circumstance he didn’t see it fit to speak to anyone about it.”

‘He just loved us all so much’

John Curtis said his father told him shortly before he died he would never have to worry about him “doing something stupid”.

“So obviously to get the subsequent news was quite a shock,” he said.

“He’s not the kind of person who would have liked to have burdened anyone with his trouble.

“He didn’t want to shift that burden that he was wearing elsewhere to help himself.

“He loved everyone around him, he didn’t want to cause them any harm or stress.

“He just loved us all so much.”

Senior Constable Curtis’ death is understood to be one of several police suicides across the country in recent weeks and months.

The “tragic and unnecessary deaths” – the Police Federation of Australia says – “demonstrate that holding the thin blue line comes at a very significant cost”.

Senior Constable Curtis’ passing has also once again put a spotlight on the psychological toll policing and other frontline emergency work has on people.

It is for this reason WAtoday has begun a three-part series on the issue starting from today. On Thursday, we will explore the newly restructured police unit tasked with helping officers and their families with mental health issues, and the toll PTSD has on serving and former cops.

‘I’m still stunned by it’

Close friend and fellow WA cop Geoff Stewart said he’d been left rocked by the passing of his mate and colleague.

“The thing I liked the most about him was his integrity,” Superintendent Stewart recalled.

“In all the time I knew him, I never saw him get angry or hear him talk ill of his colleagues. He knew the value of a team.

“DC’s passing has rocked us all and I’m still stunned by it.

“Every police station has a DC. That one individual who is the centre of the place, keeps things ticking and always had the interest of the team at heart.

“Look up country copper in a dictionary and there will be a picture of DC.”

Superintendent Stewart said Senior Constable Curtis was one of several officers stationed at Newman who had to deal with the tragic events of a police air wing crash in the regional town in 2001.

The crash claimed the lives of four police officers.

“That would have left an impact on anyone and I know it did for DC,” Superintendent Stewart said.

Another fellow police officer who knew the 53-year-old said: “He was a typical, old-school, country copper.

“Firm but fair, with a big heart and very community-minded.

“It makes me sad that a strong, resilient man who had given so much and seen so much, got to a point in his life that he could not go on.”

‘We are hurting’

At the time of his death Senior Constable Curtis was a branch official and a director of the WA Police Union.

“He genuinely cared for the welfare of his fellow officers,” WA Police Union boss and close mate Harry Arnott said.

“Around the board table, he always provided a considered, highly-valued opinion.

“A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened and he was a strong voice for regional coppers.

“We are hurting because we have not only lost a great police officer and union man, we’ve lost a great mate.”

A Senate report released in February recommended a range of changes with regard to how governments respond to the mental health concerns of first responders, like police officers and paramedics.

Among the report’s 14 recommendations was a suggestion that compulsory mental health awareness training be introduced in every first responder organisation across Australia.

Research released last year by Beyond Blue found one in three police officers and other emergency service workers experienced high or very high psychological distress compared to one in eight Australian adults.

The research also found police officers and other emergency service workers report suicidal thoughts twice as often as other adults.

John Curtis said he hoped his father’s passing would prompt other people who may have such thoughts, or who are battling any mental health issues to speak up.

“It is OK to ask for help,” he said.

“Just go speak to someone.”

In memoriam: Senior Constable David ‘Dave’ Curtis, WA Police Force, died suddenly on the night of 30th January 2019

Senior Constable David Harold Wright Curtis dedicated 34 years of diligent service to the community of Western Australia. His larger-than-life personality and his willingness to help impressed many in the Goldfields region and beyond. His presence made a significant impact in Western Australia and his leaving has left our world a poorer place.

Dave Curtis was a wonderful supporter of Police Legacy and many other community initiatives, including his contributions to Polair 64 memorial and events. The support he offered to members following the tragedy at Newman will forever be remembered; he held the community together through very trying times. As the Eastern Region Director, he was a valued Member and contributor to the WA Police Union for more than a decade.

As he leaves behind his loving wife and children, he is reunited with his late father and step-daughter. Dave Curtis will forever be remembered for his many accomplishments, and as a great friend, colleague and a true gentleman. His loss has left us all feeling deeply desolate with grief.

Our hearts go out to his family, friends, colleagues; everyone who loved him. May peace and comfort find them during this incredibly difficult time.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.

 


FAREWELL TO A ‘GENTLE GIANT’

 

There was a huge outpouring of solidarity as more than 200 police officers from across the State yesterday joined family and friends to farewell Senior Constable David Curtis at a touching funeral service in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

At the service he was described by friends and colleagues as a “gentle giant” who always put others before himself.

But underneath his sunny and selfless nature, Sen. Const. Curtis faced emotional turmoil and to the stunned dismay of friends and family he made the decision to take his own life last month at the age of 53.

His death came after 36 years with WA Police, in a career which began at Kambalda in 1982. He went on to serve at Kalgoorlie Police Station, Mt Magnet Police Station and Newman Police Station.

At the funeral service yesterday, an emotional former policeman and State Member for Kalgoorlie Kyran O’Donnell, who knew Sen. Const. Curtis for 30 years, told the Kalgoorlie Miner his friend would be sorely missed.

“We are always there to support each other but we weren’t there for Dave,” he said.

“We didn’t know. It’s just a waste.

If we can learn by this by learning to identify this in the future, it won’t happen again.”

Mr O’Donnell said he had never seen so many officers at a funeral before and it was a fitting send-off for a “gentle giant”.

“He was one of the nicest guys,” he said. “No one ever had a bad word about him. It didn’t matter whatever you asked of him, he did it. He was one of those coppers he would still be there hours after his shifts, finishing jobs to help others and he wouldn’t even claim overtime.”

The service began with a solemn procession led by police motorbikes and cars travelling down Memorial Drive as officers stood tall on either side of the road with hands held stiffly at their sides.

The vehicles were followed by 12 members of the WA Police Pipe Band who played a selection from the Retreat Slow Marches.

Behind the pipe band, senior police officers marched ahead of the hearse carrying a casket that was flanked by close friends and family members. The procession peeled off into the Kalgoorlie Cemetery where people who could not fit inside the Kalgoorlie Crematorium Chapel stood outside to listen to the service.

During the service the chaplain said the selfless officer must have been facing emotional turmoil before he made the decision to take his own life.

He said the sudden death of Sen. Const. Curtis would have left family, friends and colleagues questioning what they might have done to intervene beforehand, but that they should not be hard on themselves.

A friend of Sen. Const. Curtis, Anita Grace, talked fondly about the officer’s time in Newman.

She said Sen. Const. Curtis was popular with the Martu people in the region and was “a big man with a big smile” who “always had time to chat”.

Superintendent Geoff Stewart who served with Sen. Const. Curtis in Newman said friends and family had been left “stunned” by the tragic news.

“He was a big man and he left a big impact on all of us,” he said.

“It wasn’t only what he did but it was how he held himself. The man had integrity.”

Supt Stewart said a light aircraft crash, which killed four police officers in January 2001 in Newman had left an indelible mark on his former colleague.

WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson, who was also at the service, told the Kalgoorlie Miner the police force was like a family.

“This is unsurprising for me as commissioner to see this demonstrable show of unity, but we are really here to care and support Dave’s immediate family and recognise his service over many, many years,” he said.

“For us it is a touching, sad and sombre moment but it’s very important that we also celebrate his life and give support to his family, friends and colleagues.”

Officer dies at Perth police station

West Australian police are investigating the death of an officer at a station in Perth, which has been temporarily closed.

Police say it appears the officer died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at Cockburn Police Station this morning.

It’s the third case of a West Australian police officer taking their life on the job in the past 10 years.

The WA Police Union and Medically Retired WA Police Officers Association have long called for more support, saying many first responders reported having suicidal thoughts after witnessing traumatic events.

In July 2015, Detective Sergeant Scott Blanchard took his own life while travelling with workmates to Kalgoorlie for a police operation involving Gypsy Joker bikies.

Deputy State Coroner Evelyn Vicker recently handed down her findings following an inquest into his death.

“I recommend WA Police health and welfare division use the police intranet to emphasise to serving members that their families should be made aware of the availability of its services,” she said.

In December 2008, Senior Sergeant Elliot Watt shot himself in the armoury of the Collie Police Station.

It was the first day back at work for the father of four after three weeks of annual leave and he had just assumed the role of acting officer in charge.

‘I know what they’re going through’: Commissioner opens up on police suicide

WA Police Force Commissioner Chris Dawson has revealed how he attended the suicide of a colleague as a young 20-year-old officer.

The state’s top cop said work across the community needed to be ongoing to ensure those who wished to speak up and seek help for mental health issues were not seen as being weak.

Mr Dawson made the comments on Thursday morning on Gareth Parker’s 6PR Morning Show.

He was speaking in the wake of the tragic death of a WA police officer who died at Cockburn police station on Monday.

First Class Constable Darren Igglesden, 50, is believed to have taken his own life shortly after reporting for duty at 6am.

Mr Dawson said he visited the police station on Wednesday where he spoke openly to First Class Constable Igglesden’s colleagues.

“I’ve dealt with suicides before,” Mr Dawson said on Thursday.

“I attended a suicide of one of my colleagues as a 20-year-old, so I personally understand what they are going through.

“When it’s one of your own, it hits that much harder.

“It probably galvanises you to the reality that you are mortal and while police put on uniforms and we get given powers and authorities … you’re not immune from the frailty of human life.

“The approach taken now … is that we talk openly about it. That will continue through not just today and tomorrow but in the time ahead.”

Mr Dawson said the agency was putting much greater emphasis on following up with officers who have attended confronting incidents.

“We also need to address any sort of perceptional culture that it is a sign of weakness if you ask for help,” he said.

“We are doing a lot of work … for officers that are exposed to scenes and incidents that do have a higher level of risk and stress attached to it.”

At a press conference on Monday Mr Dawson said First Class Constable Igglesden’s death had come as a complete shock to his family, friends and workmates.

Blue Hope, a not-for-profit group whose aim is to highlight police officers’ mental health issues nationally, posted to its Facebook page on Tuesday a photo of the 50-year-old in his police uniform.

“We will probably never know why Darren took his own life but what we are absolutely sure of is the fact that WA, this country and in fact the world is now less one hero,” the post read.

If you are experiencing mental health issues contact LifeLine WA on 13 11 14, the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.

WA Police officer dead from apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at Cockburn station

Updated

WA Police are investigating the death of an officer at a police station in Perth’s southern suburbs.

Key points:

  • Officer apparently shot himself at Cockburn Police Station with his police-issue firearm
  • WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said the force was in shock at the news
  • Death comes after state coroner calls for more support services

It is understood First Class Constable Darren Igglesden, 50, died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at Cockburn Police Station on Monday morning.

In a statement, WA Police said support services were being offered to other officers.

The station has been temporarily closed, and the public has been asked not to attend the station until further notice. They have instead been redirected to nearby Fremantle or Mandurah stations, both of which operate 24 hours a day.

‘Popular member of the force’

Police Commissioner Chris Dawson extended his condolences to the family of Constable Igglesden and colleagues at Cockburn Police Station.

“It appears Darren has drawn his service-issued pistol from the police armoury this morning (Monday), shortly after 6:00am,” he said.

“He was found deceased by colleagues within the Cockburn police building.

“Darren’s death has come as a complete shock to his family, to his friends, and indeed the entire police force.

“At this difficult time I extend my condolences to Darren’s family, his friends, his work colleagues and everyone who knew him.

“A coronial investigation is now underway and so we should let that full investigation be completed, but there does not appear to be any other persons present at the time Darren lost his life.”

Commissioner Dawson said Constable Igglesden was a popular member of the police force.

Constable Igglesden has been with the WA Police Force for six-and-a-half years, he joined us at about 44 years of age, he has had a varied career in the private sector prior to joining police,” he said.

“Well liked, well respected, a very popular member of the police force.”

Coroner called for more police support

The tragedy comes nearly a month after WA Deputy Coroner Evelyn Vicker released her findings into the suicide of police officer Scott Blanchard, who shot himself while on duty at Kalgoorlie in July 2015.

Ms Vicker found that while Detective Sergeant Blanchard appeared to be coping well with his job as a police officer, he had become “obsessed” that health problems he had were undiagnosable and “consequently took matters into his own hands …”

The inquest into Sergeant Blanchard‘s death heard details of the WA Police Service’s Health and Safety Division, which provides services such as confidential psychological counselling, peer support programs and chaplaincy services to officers and their families, to try to help them manage stress or issues that may arise as a result of their employment.

“At this difficult time I extend my condolences to Darren’s family, his friends, his work colleagues and everyone who knew him.

“A coronial investigation is now underway and so we should let that full investigation be completed, but there does not appear to be any other persons present at the time Darren lost his life.”

Commissioner Dawson said Constable Igglesden was a popular member of the police force.

Constable Igglesden has been with the WA Police Force for six-and-a-half years, he joined us at about 44 years of age, he has had a varied career in the private sector prior to joining police,” he said.

“Well liked, well respected, a very popular member of the police force.”

Police Minister Michelle Roberts said she believed the culture within the organisation was changing.

“I think the police force has changed dramatically over the last 10 years or so, in terms of encouraging officers to come forward and to show some additional care for themselves and their fellow officers,” she said.

“It used to certainly be the case that the attitude was ‘toughen up’ and to show any emotional vulnerability was seen as some kind of weakness. That’s not the attitude that’s been taken by police in recent years.

“We have had some shocking and tragic incidents in recent times where officers have had to turn out to shocking scenes, and sometimes they go to road crashes where they see shocking scenes, so we need to know that they have got the support there.

“And I have certainly received assurances from the Commissioner of Police and others that we have got good supports in place. Sometimes, though, people need to avail themselves of that support.”
