Upon joining the NSW Police Cadets, Steve’s Service Card reads thus:
Junior Trainee # 3085 ( I don’t think this is recorded correctly. He was definitely a Police Cadet – not a Junior Trainee. 3085 is his Cadet number.
He was 186cm tall and weighed 77kg with fair hair and complexion with blue eyes.
He was single.
He was licenced to drive vehicles:
GD’s cars, Utes & Light Trucks – passed 19 December 1975
Heavy Trucks, Heavy Patrol Vans & Omnibuses – passed 25 September 1978. ( This would have been for the Rescue Squad ).
Trailerised Police Vessels ( Boats ) – passed 7 May 1982.
He was part of Secondary Training Class 148A and gained a mark of 355 = 88.75%
He attended lectures on the “Techniques of Aerial Observation” at the Police Rescue Squad ( most probably at Marrickville Rescue HQ ) ON 9th & 30th August 1978. Also attended the Police Disaster and Rescue Branch training course of 1978 / 1979.
He successfully completed the Constable 1st Class course, # 22, from 10 October 1983 – 4 November 1983 inclusive.
On the 16 August 2012, a “combined” ” Send Off ” was held for Steve VALENTINE, Paul HURNEY & Peter NORTON at Wests Leagues Club, Pembroke Rd, Leumeah.
