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.
