John became a Paraplegic when injured on duty during his Probation in 1969 and was invited by Commissioner Norm Allen to remain in the Force after suffering his injury. He retired HOD in 1982.

Perhaps some members on here will remember John KIDD a former HWP Cyclist, who was involved in a serious accident with a brewery truck in the inner city about 1975 and as a result ended up a Paraplegic in a wheel chair. John as also a Vietnam Vet. and instead of being boarded out ( of NSW Police Force ) he wanted to continued as he was very interested in surveillance and collating of evidence, so in a wheel chair he was transferred to Lismore and worked with Detectives in charge of running sheets on some very heavy incidents such as the Murwillumbah Bank Robber, the double beach murders at Kingscliff, a couple of other serious murders involving Mr Asia Syndicate.

John carried on a brilliant job and he stayed in the job until about 15 years ago when his health failed him, he had all sorts of problems including having both legs amputated.


John, under the circumstances, done a great job, he was very popular with his fellow workers.
Unfortunately John passed away last Friday he was about 69 – 70 old.

May you forever Rest In Peace
