  • There does not appear to be any real information about how, when and why this website was created although its creation relates to deceased Australian Police mainly. Can you give me a bit of a heads up about the site like who created it, who the moderator is, just ‘cal’ is a bit simplistic. I am very interested in the details about deceased police many of who I knew and/or worked with over my 31 years in the force. I think though a bit of personal perspective is needed especially for the moderator to be contacted instead of posting something on a particular persons obituary. Thanks Brian Gray

    • Hi John,

      There are a couple of locations to find some of the main history of and they are located on the very first page, down the right side under the Heading – Important Links: i.e. Contact Us together with About This Site where you will find most of the sites history over the past 22 years.



  • Desperately sad outcome, a young man with a family but an extraordinarily brave and inspirational man, keeping his service to NSW people even while he was not well. Medically, sounds like it was never going to end well given his condition and disease: his kind of cancer unfortunately works that way and was pre-ordained in the poor bugger’s genes. But, regardless, what an inspiration and a chance for a shock-jock like Hadley to actually contribute something to society by publicising this man’s service, instead of tearing it apart with his usual sentimentalist, racist diatribe which is his usual stock in trade. Vale Shannon Hollibone, your wife and kids will remain ever proud.
