For those who worked in Fairfield, SWM, Lake Macquarie and their surrounds, it is with much sadness that I inform you that Inspector Dan SYKES has succumbed to the Black Dog and has passed away.

Dan attempted suicide, on Friday, and was placed on life support but has now passed on Saturday.

 

Dan, you were a great guy and great cop.

 

I am sorry that the black dog wouldn’t let you go for long enough to reach out.

Make sure that everyone is alright.

Check on each other.

Talk to each other.

Seek Help after a shit job.

Make the Welfare check.

Call on the Team after a shit job.

When you are asked, Say you are NOT  O.K.

 


 

😢💔💙 Shattered, such a great calibre of a cop, a colleague you want to have by your side. Funny, supportive and great all round guy, he was a Sgt and did periods of acting Chief Inspector whilst stationed at Newcastle.
