NSW Police Force Central Metropolitan Region Commendation Awarded to Sergeant Stephen CONROY In recognition of the courage and devotion to duty shown during the arrest of an armed offender. On 19 August 2008 an offender armed with a blood fille dsyring committed two armed robberies - one at Sportsgirl Clothing Store, Paddington and one at Beauchamp Hotel in Darlinghurst. Following identification of the offender by a witness from the Sportsgirl Clothing robbery Detective Senior Constable Therese Honess and Detective Senior Constable Stephen Davis located the offender and a foot pursuit began. The offender threatened to stab Detective Senior Constable Davis on several occasions and when the offender did not desist, Detective Senior Constable Davis drew his firearm and repeatedly called on the offender to cease and surrender. The offender did not relent and continued to try and flee from police. At one stage during the foot pursuit Sergeant Conroy drove between the offender and the officer's to protect them. As the offender was moving away from police and headed in the direction of a number of bystanders, Sergeant Controy manoeuvred the police vehicle to a point where he was able to tap the offender off his feet which enabled Detective Senior Constable Davis and Detective Senior Constable Honess to move in/ pry the syringe from the offender and effect an arrest. The offender had been responsible for a number of violent and serious crimes across multiple police Commands and the arrest had a significatn effect on the community safety. by his actions Sergeant Conroy displayed good police work and is commended.
