I worked with Norm at Cabramatta. He was a good Policeman and a top bloke.

Hey Greg. I remember Norm very well, he was a popular Police Officer in the Ingleburn area many years ago. He and Ted Baldwin, who was the Sergeant, had a great deal of respect from those who lived in and around the area. I remember they used Ted’s early model Holden sedan as the police car.(not sure if it was a real police car) but once you saw it coming it was time to disappear.
