Thinking about you today mate can’t believe it’s been 7 years since the unbearable became too much. Always wish some miracle intervention had happened but alas, it did not & your decision to leave was made.
Mate so many fun shifts together over the years along with the bad ones & the complete shit fights. You always had my back at a job. Somehow we always managed a laugh irrespective of how bad the job was. Seeing you off was a tough day.
Always remembered Senior Constable
You take care now
I’m sure our paths will cross again one day.
Cheers to you!

Clare Heiss This is just beautiful to see you honour Scott with these words. As the sister of a police officer who also took his life on duty, I can imagine the family would feel so comforted to see this post also. RIP Scott, you are in good company xxLike · Reply · 5 · Yesterday at 2:33pm

Dave Wilkinson Thank you Clare for saying so just find it hard that it really still is a taboo topic. Especially when you here management talk it up for the media but in reality they don’t give a damnLike · Reply · 5 · Yesterday at 2:36pm
Clare Heiss Exactly Dave, that’s why our family and others will continue to speak out for those that cannot – until they are honoured as they should be on the Wall, and so the Police Force acknowledge their deaths as well as their lives. #onewallforallLike · Reply · 2 · Yesterday at 2:40pmMac McGillicuddy Beautiful words Dave Wilkinson.
