Young’s first police inspector recognised on Retired Police Day
- September 5 2019
Young’s first police inspector Ronald (Jock) Rogerson returned to the Young Police Station on Thursday morning to celebrate Retired Police Day.
Inspector Rogerson joined retired senior constable John Piening and retired sergeant John Glossop with members of today’s NSW Police Force at Young’s St John’s Anglican Hall for morning tea.
Inspector Rogerson retired in 1995 after five years as the inspector at Young, and still lives in the community.
Senior constable Piening worked in the vehicle examination unit in Sydney, while sergeant Glossop finished his career in the Air Wing Unit based at Bankstown after a number of years in the Police Rescue Squad.
Both senior constable Piening and sergeant Glossop retired to the country and live near Young.
Inspector of Young Police Jacob Reeves presented a Retired Police Day pin to each of the retired officers, along with a trinket recognising their service.
Inspector Rogerson and senior constable Piening received dress uniform insignia representing their respective ranks, while sergeant Glossop was given a silver chinstrap for a sergeant’s hat.
“We all respect our retired officers, it’s not just a throw away line,” Inspector Jacob Reeves said.
“We all have a lot of respect for those who have gone before us.”
Meals on Wheels send care packs with regular deliveries
Young Meals on Wheels volunteers not only delivered regular meals but also care packages to their clients last week.
The packages included toilet paper, Glen 20 disinfectant spray, tissues, hand sanitiser, seniors newspaper and juice.
Boredom buster packs including puzzles and gentle exercise ideas donated by Young Rotary Club, Young Library, Young Witness, Woolworths, NSW Meals and Wheels and RB Australia were also distributed.
Young Meals on Wheels coordinator Jenny Rea thanked those who donated items.
“Thank you to all our generous people who donated,” Jenny said.
Pictured above is one Meals on Wheels client Jock Rogerson who received a care pack in addition to his regular meal, and John Payne from Young Rotary Club.
Nothing further, than what is recorded above, is known about this person at the time of publication and further information and photos would be appreciated.
