Despite the Official Police email stating that “Records indicate that Assistant Commissioner Day was performing duty as the Assistant Commissioner, Crime at the time of his retirement on 22 May 1985, completing 39 years service with NSW Police“is incorrect as other records show him starting as a NSW Police Cadet, starting at the Academy on the 26 May 1941 and finishing, upon Retirement, on 22 May 1985. 4 days short of 44 years Service.
