His colleagues will best remember him for his dedication and commitment to Operation Support Group (OSG) operations, firstly as a valued member of South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad (OSG) and more recently with Operation ODIN (Central Metropolitan Region).

Theo was a well-respected member of the NSW Police Force who took immense pride in his job. He performed his duties with the highest of professionalism and will be remembered for the fun and antics, for which he was renowned.

Above his Policing, he was first a loving son to Sam, Mary and Barry, brother to Sarah and Ed and uncle to his many nieces and nephews.

Theo leaves behind his fiancée Rebekah, who is a current serving member of the NSW Police Force, and beautiful 3-year-old twin daughters Brooke and Sophie, who adore their dad. Theo was a wonderful father who cherished his girls and would constantly talk about them.

Policeman dies in suicide at NSW Police headquarters in Sydney

 

A police officer has taken his own life at the central Sydney offices of NSW Police.

The apparent suicide occurred in an office at the Sydney Police Centre in Surry Hills on Monday morning.

Initial inquiries indicate the man’s death was not suspicious, a spokesperson for NSW Police said, and a report will be prepared for the coroner.

A spokesperson for the Police Association of NSW said the union was aware of the death and would be providing support to those affected.

The death follows a number of suicides among police officers recently, including a senior constable in the New England region.

Police suicides in previous years have prompted discussion about the high-pressure nature of the job and whether officers are adequately supported.

A coronial inquest into the 2013 suicide of a former officer, Ashley Bryant, highlighted the psychological effects of police work, including the stress of constantly being alert to danger and coming into contact with victims of crime.

The inquest found NSW Police was working to help its members deal with the “extreme stressors” they face although more needed to be done.

Earlier this month, the Herald reported concerns held by current and former police officers about the culture inside the force.

If you, or someone you know, is thinking about suicide, you can seek help by calling Lifeline on 13 11 14, Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467 or NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511.

I very much sympathize with everyone who knew and loved this brave and wonderful person. It seems to me even in the eyes of Matthew one could see the kind heart and courage with which he lived all his life. I am infinitely sorry that such wonderful people leave our world, although, on the contrary, I would like to keep such people longer on this planet. It is a pity that this wonderful person did not find the strength to turn to professionals for help. I think he could have spent many more years of a happy life with his… Read more »
