Sergeant Kerry WEEKES was a Traffic Sergeant at Fairfield Police Station when, in 1987, he shot himself with his service revolver whilst inside the Traffic Office of that building.

Fairfield Police Station, at that time, comprised to two buildings on either side of the driveway which passed between the two buildings.

The Traffic Office was on the second floor on the western side of the driveway and was at the rear of that building overlooking the rear car park.

This original version of the Fairfield Police Station was demolished and later replaced with the current station we see upon Smart St, Fairfield, today.

Kerry john weekes deserves to be on the police wall of remembrance . Kerry was well respected and admired during his years in the police force. For Kerry to be included on this wall would be a very proud moment for his late parents and brothers Trevor and Geoff. We would appreciate consideration of this request as this area is the ultimate honour for police who died while on duty .
Yours Sincerely
Moira Weekes ( sister in law)
