Memorial Board Honouring Kelly Foster.

 

18 September 2021:
This morning, Senior Constable Kelly Foster‘s name was placed inside the Commissioner’s Baton, blessed, and carried to the NSW Police Wall of Remembrance.
In a normal year, the baton would be on the road by now, carried by a convoy of motorbike riders in the Wall to Wall – Ride for Remembrance, all travelling towards the National Police Memorial in Canberra with the express purpose of honouring and remembering fallen police mates.
The bikes remain silent today, but the moment loses none of its importance.
COVID has changed everything, but it will never diminish the memories of the fallen.
Kelly Foster‘s name will stay inside the baton until next year, when it will be carried by the Wall to Wall Riders to the Memorial.
We hope it will be the only name carried.
We remember, always.

21 January 2021
From all of us at Chifley Police District, we would like to thank the community for their love and support in relation to the untimely death of Senior Constable Kelly Foster.
As you can appreciate, we are expecting a significant gathering to bid her farewell, and with the current COVID restrictions, not everyone who would like to pay their respects in person will be able to do so.
We are urging members of the public not to attend the church; instead, please demonstrate your community spirit by forming a socially distanced line along either side of Bridge Street (between Mort and Short streets) from 1:30pm tomorrow (Thursday) to view the procession as it leaves the church.
On behalf of Kelly’s family and the broader NSW Police Force family, thank you for your ongoing support.

Senior Constable Kelly Foster, aged 39, died following a canyoning incident at Mount Wilson yesterday (Saturday 2 January 2021).

Snr Cst Foster attested on 27 August 2010, after which she commenced duties as a probationary constable at Newtown Local Area Command.

She was confirmed as a constable in May 2012.

In May 2014, Snr Cst Foster joined the State Crime Command working as an intel analyst until May 2020.

She was most recently working at Chifley Police District, stationed at Lithgow Police Station.

NSW Police Acting Commissioner Mal Lanyon has extended his condolences to the Foster family on behalf of the NSW Police Force.
“It’s a very sad time for the NSW Police Force and Kelly’s death is a loss to the whole community,” Acting Commissioner Lanyon said.
“To hear reports that Kelly was trying to help another woman when she died demonstrates her commitment to the community she served and the ability to put the needs of others before her own.
“Kelly was a highly regarded and dedicated officer who will be sorely missed by colleagues across the force.
“Her policing career was put on hold when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, however, her strength to survive this and return to work is another testament to her strength and resilience.
“Above all, Kelly was a kind and loving daughter, sister and partner.”

Snr Cst Foster’s family have requested privacy at this time.
