 September 1971: Fatal Shooting 22 Division.
Mid-morning of 30th September 1971, a female walked into Blacktown Police Station to report a murder /rape earlier that day at Toongabbie. Sgt 1/c. William. W. Riley and Sgt 3/c. Maurice. R. McDiarmid attended the scene. Soon after both Officers were shot dead by the suspect Ronald Clark, using a .22 calibre repeating rifle. He then stole both Officers .38 Smith and Wesson revolvers.
Clark escaped in a vehicle. That afternoon the car and armed suspect were seen travelling in Hoxton Park Rd, Green Valley, in the Liverpool Patrol, by Constable Alfred Gregory and Constable L. A. Crawford of Cabramatta. The suspect was pursued, refusing to stop. On making a right turn into Hill Road, Constable Crawford, heroically rammed the suspect’s car, causing it to crash into petrol pumps at a service stationed at that intersection. Constable 1/c. Gregory immediately alighted from the Police vehicle and confronted Clark who aimed a firearm at Constable Gregory. During this confrontation Clark was fatally wounded by Constable 1/c Gregory. Later in his service Sgt Alfred Gregory was station at Liverpool on General Duties.

Bravery awards to policemen

SYDNEY, Friday. — One city and five country policemen had been awarded the Queen’s Commendation for Bravery, the Governor of NSW, Sir Roden Cutler, announced today.

They are Constable Ernest Max MacLeod Chapman, of Nowra, Sergeant Third Class Keith William Krause and Senior Constable John William Hayes, of Orange, Senior Constable Georgi Vsevolodovich Radzievic, of Mudgee, and Senior Constable First Class Alfred George Gregory, of Cabramatta.

The citation for Constable Chapman says that in Lord Street, Kempsey, on October 13, 1970, he saw a car being driven at high speed and in a dangerous manner.

He stopped the driver who pointed a sawn-off .22 calibre rifle at the constable and shouted abuse at him.

The driver disarmed Constable Chapman and forced him at gunpoint to enter the car.

During the journey south along the Pacific Highway, “he held the police revolver at the back of the constable’s head, continued to abuse him, threatened to kill him and fired two shots, apparently out of the car window, as a warning to the constable“.

At Kew Constable Chapman managed to alert the proprietor of a service station.

Sergeant Third Class P. N. Long, of Kew police, arrived but was disarmed, and forced to enter the car.

Constable Chapman purposely dropped the car keys and managed to grasp the revolver, which fired, narrowly missing Sergeant Long.

The man was subdued, later charged with various offences and sentenced to 14 years’ hard labour.

Upon joining NSWPF – Alf was described as:
5′ 11″ tall, 12 stone 9 lb, hazel eyes, brown hair, medium complexion.
He was previously employed as “Call Boy”, Cleaner and fireman for 6 years with the Dept. Railways.
Alf was a train driver prior to joining the Police Force, he loved his beloved trains, he used to talk about the old steamer he shovelled coal on and the runs he made with the railway. A couple of things about Alf, he was very musically talented, he could play any keyboard instrument by ear, no music, he’d just sit down and play. He had his own Organ at his house and he loved it. Another thing that was outstanding with him was his handwriting. He had a beautiful handwriting style. The charge books he wrote in were copperplate, and a short while ago I went to Tingha just to see where he’d worked. I managed to get into the Police Station there and rummaged through some of their old records, sadly a lot of them had been destroyed but I managed to find a sample of this handwriting dating back to the mid to late 1960’s in an old index book. I showed it to the Senior Constable on duty there and he agreed about Alfs style.

Ajax Bolt There was a Robert W White, born, 9/10/1940, registered no 12534, member of class 110, sworn in at Redfern on 3/4/1967. He joined the Police band very early in his career and was a trumpet player, he apparently worked in the corrective services band at some time. Could be the same person, hope this helps in some way.
Like · Reply · 9 · 19 hrs
Cameron Bell  Yes that’s him. He played the cornet amongst others. He also played in the Police Bands Dance Band where only a select few top musicians would play. He was an excellent musician and I always remember the jokes he used to tell.
Cameron Bell Just trying to remember the year, but Mike Butcher took over conducting the band in 1972 and it was just after that the band went full time which would have been 1974/75.
Before that Whitey was stationed at Petersham where I think he was when he joined. He did three periods a week teaching music at a PCYC. Whitey was at Leichhardt.
He was still with the Police band when he died of bowel cancer.
He was a funny bugger, he turned 50 and seemed to give it up. Always saying “not bad for an old bugger”. The word was if he had had periodical check ups he would still be alive today.
So to sum up he was only stationed at Petersham police station then full time band at the Police Barracks at Redfern.
Hope that helps

Joe GARDEN was at Mudgee Police Station around 1987-88 in uniform. Not sure where he was prior to that.
Joe started in the Detectives office as an ‘A’ lister around that time. He was left high and dry after the designated detectives moved on and he was forced to run the detectives office ‘one out’.
Apparently Joe hit the bottle quite badly and finished up banging up a police vehicle ‘on duty’ whilst intoxicated.
Had some major fights with ‘senior officers’ and was forced onto sick leave.
Joe was ‘Force transferred’ to Dubbo Intelligence Office and worked there for a year or two before he drew his service revolver, went home and shot himself.
It is believed that Joe was aged in his late 20’s or early 30’s, married with young kids at the time.
( 2019 ) Information is that Joe had attempted a drug over dose and had been admitted to Dubbo Base Hospital where, apart from other methods, he was orally administered ‘charcoal’ to absorb the poison.
He was seen, in Hospital, by a Mental Health worker who asked how he was.  Joe’s forceful reply was ” I’m FINE !! ” and Joe repeated that statement.
Later, that morning, Joe was discharged home.
Joe attended Dubbo Police Station where he picked up his Police issued revolver and went home where he placed a pillow slip over his head before fatally shooting himself, in the head, whilst on the lawn.
May you forever be at Peace Joe.
Further information is sought about this man, his life and his death.

 

Internet searches have failed to find anything further as of this date – 1 June 2016 or 5 June 2019 – on this man.
Further information is sought.

Death Of Clinton James Moller

Speakers Neilly Mr Stanley; Debus Mr Bob
Business Questions Without Notice, Condolence

DEATH OF CLINTON JAMES MOLLER
Mr NEILLY: My question without notice is addressed to the Minister for Corrective Services, and Minister for Emergency Services. Would the Minister advise what information he has about the prison classification of former police officer Clinton James Moller?

Mr DEBUS: I am sure that honourable members understand the shock, grief and disbelief that the Moller family is experiencing at losing a family member under the circumstances they have heard of in recent days. A coronial inquest will be held, so I am constrained in what I can say publicly about the circumstances of Mr Moller’s death. But I am gravely concerned by allegations by inmate Moller‘s solicitor, Mr Ken Madden, who this morning told radio 2BL:

        A lot of pressure had come from somewhere very high up to keep him – that is, Mr Moller at Long Bay.

That is a grave allegation. I am advised by the Department of Corrective Services that the facts are as follows. Mr Moller was extradited from New Zealand in August last year and held at the Long Bay Correctional Centre. He applied for bail before Justice John Dowd, who in refusing bail stated that Moller should “be placed in such protection either in the Special Purposes Unit at Long Bay or Berrima or such other similar protection as can be provided for him”. As a result, Mr Moller was placed in strict protection – a classification to protect him from other inmates. On Friday, 15 November 1996, Mr Moller was convicted of contempt of the royal commission. On 21 November the Long Bay classification committee met to assess Mr Moller‘s classification rating. Four members of the committee recommended that Mr Moller be sent to the Berrima Correctional Centre. However the chairman of the committee and the manager of classification dissented.

The matter was then sent, as departmental operating procedures required, to the director of classification for adjudication – as is always the case when that committee cannot agree on a recommendation. The director considered several factors before allocating Mr Moller an A2 classification, a classification that ensured that he would be held in a high security prison and therefore not in Berrima. The factors included the fact that Mr Moller had been the subject of an extensive international search by police and an extradition order; that he was facing serious charges of supplying commercial quantities of amphetamines and ecstasy; and, most pertinently, that on 5 October 1996 a scheduled visitor to Mr Moller had been apprehended at Long Bay carrying amphetamines. During a search of the visitor’s handbag two plastic resealable bags containing amphetamines weighing 1.7 grams were found. The visitor was interviewed by police and charged with possessing a prohibited drug.

On 26 November Mr Moller‘s solicitors, Walter Madden Jenkins, wrote to me and my department requesting information on his classification. The solicitors were informed of the decision of the director of classification. But, most importantly, the solicitors also wrote to the Ombudsman raising the issue of Mr Moller‘s classification. After examining the classification process and interviewing Mr Moller the Ombudsman wrote to his solicitors advising that she was satisfied that the department was not unreasonable in its refusal to transfer the inmate to Berrima. The department informed me that last week Mr Moller again requested to be moved to Berrima. Instead, and in accordance with the principles I have described, he was moved to the strict protection unit at Parklea prison on 11 April. The circumstances surrounding his death on Saturday, 12 April, will, as I have said, be the subject of a coronial inquiry.

Moller’s Jail Death Likely An Accident

Illawarra Mercury

Thursday December 18, 1997

Former police officer Clinton Moller may have accidentally killed himself when he tied a skipping rope around his neck and hanged himself in his prison cell, a coroner found yesterday.

Coroner Derrick Hand said Moller‘s actions may have only been an attempt to get the attention of prison authorities and be moved to another prison.

The 27-year-old former Bondi police officer was found dead in his cell in Parklea prison’s protective wing, wearing only his underpants and with a jumper tied around his neck, on April 12 this year.

Moller was serving an eight-month jail sentence for contempt of the Police Royal Commission after he failed to appear before it and fled to New Zealand. He was also awaiting trial on drug charges. Mr Hand said there was no evidence Moller had suicidal tendencies and in fact evidence showed he had a positive attitude he would successfully defend the drug charges.

 IT will be mate against mate on Sunday when the Wollongong branch of the NSW Police Association holds its second annual charity rugby league match in North Wollongong.The match, for the Chief Inspector Graham Donnelly Memorial Cup, pits the Wollongong Police Station Falcons against the Lake Illawarra Police Station Lions to help raise funds for NSW Police Legacy and local PCYCs.

Several trophies will be presented on the day along with the Chief Inspector Graham Donnelly Memorial Cup.

They are for the Sergeant Nick Skomarow Player of Match, Senior Constable Ray Shuberg Memorial Touch Game and the Sergeant Colin Stevenson Memorial Tug of War.

All trophies are named after police officers who had died in the last decade.

Part of the proceeds of the day go to help the families, widows and children, of these officers.

Recent wet weather meant the game has been moved to the soccer ground near the PCYC in North Wollongong. The gates will now open at 2pm on Sunday with the main game starting at 3pm.

Sergeant Robert Minns said it was also a family day with activities for children and a display of new and vintage police vehicles.

“Last year we raised $6000 with the goal of $10,000 this year.

“It is a gold coin donation to come and watch,” Sgt Minns said.

He said PCYC did great work in the community and the NSW Policy Legacy helped hundreds of people each year.

He said it helped a lot more people than many realised.

Officers honoured in sport

WOLLONGONG and Lake Illawarra police officers battled it out during a sports day to honour fallen comrades and raise funds.

The Graeme Donnelly Memorial Cup Fund-raiser for Police Legacy (Police Bushfire Appeal) and PCYC on October 22 drew more than 800 spectators and raised almost $6000.

The event was a fitting memorial day for Kiama’s Chief Inspector Graeme Donnelly, Sergeant Nick Skomarow and Senior Constable Ray Schuberg.

It involved a fierce tug-of-war won by the heavyweight Wollongong team, which had three members weighing more than 120 kilograms each. The Wollongong team also won the Senior Constable Ray Schuberg Memorial touch football game.

Senior Constable Schuberg died in 1997, and a memorial trophy was made in his honour for touch football between the emergency services, but hasn’t been played since 2002.

The main game of rugby league featured Wollongong recruiting guest player, former Australian representative Paul McGregor, while the Lake Illawarra team turned to former Australian halfback John Simon.

Both teams had a few other ring-ins and the game was played hard, like police football used to be played.

The Wollongong Falcons did well to hold out a strong Lake team and win the game by only two points. The Sergeant Nick Skomarow Man of the Match award went to Fletcher Wyver.

Inspector Donnelly and Sergeant Skomarow‘s families attended and presented the awards.

Senior Constable Schuberg tragically died in 1997 and a memorial trophy was made in his honour for touch footy between the emergency services but it hasn’t been played for since 2002.

Organisers were “thrilled” to use the trophy again and remember “a good copper who loved his touch footy”.

In the main game of rugby league Wollongong recruited former Australian representative Paul McGregor, while the Lake Illawarra team turned to former Australian halfback John Simon.

Both teams had a few other “ring-ins” and the game was played hard and tough, like police footy used to be.

The Wollongong Falcons did well to hold out a strong Lake team and win the game by only two points.

The Sergeant Nick Skomarow Man of the Match award went to Fletcher Wyver.

The families of Inspector Donnelly and Sergeant Skomarow attended the event and were presented awards.

On 22 October the Wollongong and Lake Illawarra Branches of PANSW conducted a sports day. The day was fitting memorial day for C/Insp Graeme Donnelly, Sergeant Nick Skomarow as well as the late S/Cst Ray Schuberg. The captains of the teams were Phil Bunker for Wollongong and Paul Winston for Lake Illawarra. Both members did a great job in putting the teams together and playing their part in organising the event.

There were close to 800 spectators on the day when the main game started with approximately $6000 dollars raised. Most of this money went to Police Legacy and moved into the Police Bush Fire Appeal. An amount was donated to the local PCYC club as well. There were some great local sponsors of the day including H.Parsons Funeral Directors, Collegians Rugby League Club, PANSW Panel Solicitor Chris Nikolovski Lawyers, Cleary Bros, West Wollongong Rotary and other local companies.

The day involved a Tug a War competition. The Wollongong team stacked with nine members who were all over the 100kg mark. The Wollongong team made the tonne and some more on top. The Lake team had no chance with an average weight of about 85kg except a couple of their team but they know who they are. Wollongong team defeated the Lake team in record time but when it was suggested it should be the best of five attempts both teams walked off exhausted. The Captain of the Wollongong Team Anthony Collier, when he received the trophy, acknowledged the good fight the Lake team put up but they had no chance against the big Wollongong Team.

The next part of the day was the S/Cst Ray Schuberg Memorial Touch Footy Game. Ray worked at Wollongong. He was a great street Police Officer and a good bloke who loved his touch footy. Ray tragically died in 1997 and a memorial trophy was made in his honour for touch footy between the emergency services but hasn’t been played since 2002. This was a great time to use the trophy again and remember a good copper that Ray was.
Again this was a hard fought game with a speedy Brain Rice and Pete Roncato the standouts for the winning Wollongong Team. Daryl Smith formed Lake and now PTC and Cate Johnston from the PCYC were the standouts for the Lake Team.

The game was won by Wollongong with all members again looking pretty exhausted. The captain of the winning team Darrell Buckman, who wasn’t working at Wollongong when Ray died but was informed of the tragic circumstances of his death, stated it was a great honour to play in the touch footy game and to honour and remember Ray.

The main game of rugby league was one tough game with some massive hits ups which got the emotions of both teams boiling over at times. It was played like rugby league of old, nothing fancy. The Wollongong Team’s guest player was former Australian centre Paul McGregor who has still got it. The Lake Illawarra Team had former Australian half back John Simmon who still has the ball skills. The coaches were Commissioned Officer Delegate Brian Wyver who was the patron on the day and Life Member of the Wollongong Falcons Police Rugby League Club. Wollongong also had Former Sgt Barry Doherty as manager and Joe Davidson as head masseur who is the father of two NSW Police Officers, Jackie and Matt. Lake coach was Det/Sgt Steve Worthington who was a tough second rower in first grade for the Illawarra Steelers in his youth.

Both teams had a few “ring ins” along the way, which made the game even more interesting. The score went back and forth over the three quarters of 20 minutes each with Paul and John weaving their magic for both teams. Due to the high intensity and the average age of both teams there were a lot of bench changes. In the end the Wollongong Falcons won by two points which showed how close the game was.

The Sgt Nick Skomarow Man of the Match award went to Fletcher Wyver. Captain Phil Bunker took possession of the Graeme Donnelly Memorial Cup and thanked all the players for their efforts and for the big turnout by the spectators.

The families of Graeme and Nick were in attendance with Graeme’s son Brad Dean playing a good strong game. Graeme’s wife Kerry was presented with Graeme’s Police Board and Nick’s wife Coralie was presented with a framed “Wall to Wall” board. It was great game and a great day for a great cause.

The second annual Graeme Donnelly Cup will be held on Sunday the 10th of August 2014 and will no doubt be bigger and better than last year.

Constable David Carty was remembered as a respected man at the 17th anniversary of his death

 Constable David Carty is remembered as a respectable country man.

THE pain of April 18 doesn’t get any easier for Fairfield police officers who recall Constable David Carty as a respectable country man.

Const Carty (pictured) was remembered by police officers and former colleagues at Fairfield police station on Friday, the 17th anniversary of his brutal death.

On April 18, 1997, Const Carty, 25, was stabbed in the Cambridge Tavern car park, after having a drink with colleagues after a late shift.

Superintendent Peter Lennon said April 18 was one date he and his fellow officers would never forget. “He (Const Carty) came from the country and was well-respected by everyone,” he said.

During the memorial service, a minute’s silence was held and wreaths were laid in memory of the young man.

Supt Lennon said being in the police force meant brave men and women confronted dangers as they performed their duties.

“Police officers put their lives on the line every day for their community,” he said. “Whilst this event was after hours, he was still a serving officer because he was known to be a police officer when the incident occurred.”

HONOURING DAVID CARTY

David Andrew Carty, from Parkes, joined the NSW Police Force on February 20, 1994

After being posted to Liverpool police station, he was transferred to Fairfield police station on November 20, 1994, and confirmed to the rank of Constable on August 19, 1995

During the early hours of April 18, 1997, Constable Carty, 25, was stabbed in the car park of Fairfield’s Cambridge Tavern, where he had enjoyed a drink with colleagues after a late shift

Slain local police officer remembered

The David Carty Memorial set up at this week’s service in Sydney.

NSW Police Force held a memorial service on Wednesday to commemorate the life and service of former Parkes man Constable David Carty, who was slain 15 years ago.

Const Carty was stabbed to death as he left licensed premises in the Sydney suburb of Fairfield in the early hours of Friday, April 18, 1997, after having a drink with colleagues following a late shift.

At 10am on Wednesday April 18, 2012, colleagues and friends gathered at Fairfield Police Station for a memorial service, on the 15th anniversary of his death.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Michael Gallacher, NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, South West Metropolitan Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner Frank Mennilli, Fairfield Local Area Commander, Superintendent Peter Lennon, former colleagues, local police officers, local members of Parliament and members of the Fairfield community also attended.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Michael Gallacher, and NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, pay their respects to slain local police officer, David Carty and Wednesday’s special memorial service in Sydney.

Senior Catholic Police Chaplain, Father Paul O’Donoghue, led the blessing for serving police and emergency service officers.

Constable Carty’s family also held a memorial service on the family property in Parkes where Lachlan Local Area Commander, Robert Ryan, and local police officers paid their respects.

Supt Lennon said while it was painful to recall the circumstances of Constable Carty’s death, it was important for his memory to be honoured.

“David was a young man with a great future, personally and professionally,” Supt Lennon said.

“He had committed himself to protecting his community and paid the ultimate price.

“Every day, officers confront dangers as they perform their duties, and the memory of a departed colleague reminds us that a safe community can come at a high price for officers and their families,” Supt Lennon said.

Constable Carty joined the NSW Police Force on February 20, 1994, attesting as a Probationary Constable on August 19, 1994, and began working at Liverpool.

On November 20, 1994, he was transferred to Fairfield and confirmed to the rank of Constable on August 19, 1995.

Before joining the NSW Police, David Carty worked on the family farm and showed as much dedication and independence there as he did as a Constable.

“Constable Carty’s relatively short experience in the NSW Police Force showed him to be an exemplary police officer,” Supt Lennon said.

Tribute to Constable David Andrew Carty

TRIBUTE TO CONSTABLE DAVID ANDREW CARTY
Page: 11204

Mr GUY ZANGARI (Fairfield) [12.11 p.m.]: On 18 April 2012 Fairfield police station held a 15-year memorial service for the late Constable David Carty. The memorial was to be held at David Carty Reserve but due to the torrential rain it was held at Fairfield police station. Besides the Fairfield memorial, a memorial was held also at the Carty family property in Parkes where Lachlan Local Area Commander Robert Ryan and local police officers paid their respects, together with the Carty family. The memorial at Fairfield was attended by the police commissioner, assistant commissioners, police Minister and local and State government representatives. Local fire, ambulance and State Emergency Service representatives paid their respects on this solemn occasion. Also present were the emergency response officers who, in the words of Superintendent Peter Lennon, moved heaven and earth to save this officer’s life. Inspector Brendan McMahon was the official master of ceremonies, with Commissioner Andrew Scipione offering kind and comforting words to the entire community. Superintendent Peter Lennon brought home the message of the loss to the community of David Carty and how to this day, so many years later, people in Fairfield still feel the pain. Father Paul O’Donoghue offered blessings and prayers to the gathering. Following the prayers a wreath-laying ceremony took place. It was at that point that emotion set in and not a dry eye could be seen in the gathering. Many of those who were present did not know David but they had grieved his loss for years. I recall that David’s death in 1997 was a shock to the entire community. So brutal was his death that churches around Fairfield held masses and services in his memory. At that time I was teaching at Patrician Brothers College, Fairfield, and I remember witnessing the grief that beset the community. Students and teachers held prayer services following David’s death. Sitting at the memorial service gave me the empty feeling that Fairfield experienced in 1997. I can only imagine what it was like for David’s work colleagues and especially for his family. David Carty was a country boy who came to Sydney to fulfil his dream of becoming a police officer. He joined the NSW Police Force on 20 February 1994, was sworn in as a probationary constable in August 1994 and began working at Liverpool. On 20 November 1994 Constable Carty was transferred to Fairfield and quickly established himself in the Fairfield Local Area Command and in the community as a hardworking police officer. On 17 April 1997, whilst on a daily foot patrol, David and other police officers had reason to speak to a number of people on a local Fairfield street. Later that evening, whilst off duty, Constable Carty and his colleagues attended the Cambridge Tavern. At about 2.10 a.m., as he was leaving the tavern, David was set upon by a number of offenders, including some of those he had spoken to earlier that day. Constable David Carty was stabbed to death by his attackers. Senior Constable Michelle Auld also was seriously assaulted whilst giving David assistance. Early that morning a piece of Fairfield was taken away. We will never forget David Carty. As a community we keep his memory alive by having a reserve named in his honour—the David Carty Reserve. There are plans in the Fairfield community to include a memorial garden in the reserve, to create a place where the community can offer prayers and thanks to the late Constable David Carty and reflect on the many sacrifices that he ultimately made as a result of his vocation as a police officer. David was never given a chance to marry, to have children and to experience what so many of us take for granted. What we as legislators can do is to ensure that our police are given the powers and support they need not only to keep the community safe but also to keep uniformed officers safe in the line of duty. Constable David Carty will never be forgotten by Fairfield.

Mr DONALD PAGE (Ballina—Minister for Local Government, and Minister for the North Coast) [12.15 p.m.]: I take this opportunity to thank the member for Fairfield for reminding us of the terrible murder of David Carty. I am sure that all members and the people of New South Wales remember the despicable murder that took place late at night in a car park outside licensed premises when David Carty was off duty. David Carty’s father, John Carty, is a constituent of the member for Dubbo who is in the Chamber. I was interested to hear the member for Fairfield mention the David Carty memorial that is to be established in the Fairfield reserve—a nice tribute to a man whose life was cut short by a most heinous crime.
