RIP Pete. What a great bloke. Worked with him at North Sydney in 78/9. On parade one morning and Insp Dafter chipped him about his hair being too long. Next day on parade Pete turned up bald as a badger and got in the shit for it.

Peter Vlug was the original “Crocodile Dundee” of the Northern Beaches. Snakes, lizards, spiders, turtles, dragons and many other creatures. A strong willed, relaxed, deep thinking, charismatic Police Officer. The King of Avalon! Keith Blackett often wondered what the youngsters at Avalon were doing! When with Peter Vlug – check the surf, feed the lorikeets from the front verandah at Avalon, check out the koalas in the back yard then terrorise the locals. Many a time bitten by his beloved pythons he never gave up on them. A wonderful man, great friend to many and an exceptionally good Policeman. Kind Regards and best wishesto the family of Peter Anton Vlug.
RIP Beaver

RIP Vluggy.
Fond memory of a NSW Police Surfing Association competition we had one weekend in UlladullaI. THE 90’s We all stayed in the Marlin Hotel.
Vluggy was there with his pet snake. He wandered down to a pet shop and came back with a mouse. Proceeded to feed the mouse to his snake at the tables outside when we were having a beer. Remember it well. LOL. Catch a big wave for us up there. You will be charging as always.
