Dr “Tony” Raymond has just passed away after a battle with Cancer

Dr Raymond was appointed as the first civilian director of the Forensic Services Group in the late 90s and although “Director” held the equivalent rank of Assistant Commissioner In charge of over 1000 police and civilians.

Tony was responsible for pioneering new forensic techniques in NSW such as Luminol and other chemical techniques seen on shows such as CSI.

He introduced civilians into SOCO positions ( Scene of Crime Officers ) and robotics into DNA laboratories in NSW and introduced Nationally accredited tertiary training for Forensic Crime Scene Examiners.

Tony was also a world recognised Blood Splash Expert and gave evidence in many forums including judicial reviews.

Tony also became NSW police first chief scientist.

 

Tony’s association in various roles went for around 20 years.

 

We thank you for your vision, foresight and aid in bringing many, many criminals to justice.

Tony was a top bloke. Despite his esteemed position and role, he was never shy about having a beer with the troops at the Macquarie. I met him a few years prior to his NSWPF appointment when I travelled to Melbourne’s Forensics Laboratory to consult with him on blood splash evidence from a murder I investigated. He insisted he be called just Tony. Didn’t care for ‘Sir’.
The NSWPF Forensic Services Group (as it was then) became a world-class facility due to your leadership and foresight. RIP.
