June 1973: Former Liverpool Police Officer – Senior Constable Darryl R. Blanch ( # 10649 ) and Probationary Constable S. C. Bird ( # 15174 ) pursued three men travelling in a stolen motor vehicle at Lansdowne.
Shots were exchanged during the subsequent high speed chase, one of which penetrated the windscreen of the Police vehicle only inches away from the head of Senior Constable Blanch.
After abandoning the stolen vehicle at Chullora, the offenders were arrested later by other members of the Police Force.
