Ian KimberRIP Ron Banning. I’m proud to say Ron was one of the blokes who trained me. An enormous character in every sense of the word. His street sense and ability to pass on that knowledge was what set him apart.

Greg Elks: Ron was a terrific bloke who taught a lot of us young Coppers some very valuable lessons for working the streets. He was one of nature’s gentlemen, and by crikey he was good to have in your corner when things got hairy. A bloody good Copper and a terrific mate. RIP Ron.

Ian Kimber: Amen to the above. He taught so many of us. Never treated us pros as idiots and did it with great humour.
