  • Hi Marcus, many thanks for your thoughts. Only just saw your post today and it was greatly appreciated. I sincerely hope your policing career continues. Just remember – don’t be too keen on retirement as it is not all it is cracked up to be. The Police Family is the best you can be involved in. I certainly miss it.

    My deepest sympathy Scott in the loss of your Dad and now your Mum. I know the pain and heartache you must be feeling, my Mum & Dad passed over many years ago. If there is anything I can do to help over this sad time please give me a call. My number is in the police directory. Hope to hear from you.

  • Hi Peter, thank you for taking the time to comment on Mum and Dad’s listing. We miss them both terribly but they are together now with Mum’s passing. I have met you and both Mum and Dad spoke very highly of you. I hope you and your family are well.
    Regards, Scott Ide

    I first met Ken many years ago, when he worked at Cabramatta. Ken and I worked together many times whilst he was there. His wife Joy who we met on a few social occasions was a lovely lady. It’s sad to hear of her passing, and may she rest in peace and meet up with Ken again
