The eleventh Deputy Commissioner, Ronald Joseph Redmond, rose to this rank on 02.07.1987 after 35 years in a variety of state-wide branches.  A long term member of the CIB, R.Redmond was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 1979 to enable him to study Scenes of Crime techniques in the UK and USA.  Deputy Commissioner Redmond enjoyed just two months at this level before taking on the top policing job as Acting Commissioner when Terence Murray Lewis was ordered to stand down whilst allegations before the Fitzgerald Inquiry were resolved.  Mr Redmond guided Queensland’s Police through two turbulent years with a wealth of knowledge and fine sense of humour.
