Hey Scottie

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!

  • Peter Gould A fine epitaph for a fallen brother. RIP Scott Gray. Well done Dave Wilkinson.

  • 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 xx

  • 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 damn

  • 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. #onewallforall
