Death / Funeral Notice – Ronald Croy Rogerson


Young’s first police inspector recognised on Retired Police Day

Young’s first police inspector Ronald (Jock) Rogerson returned to the Young Police Station on Thursday morning to celebrate Retired Police Day.

Inspector Rogerson joined retired senior constable John Piening and retired sergeant John Glossop with members of today’s NSW Police Force at Young’s St John’s Anglican Hall for morning tea.

Inspector Rogerson retired in 1995 after five years as the inspector at Young, and still lives in the community.

Young Police – first police Inspector Ronald (Jock) Rogerson and today’s Young Police Inspector Jacob Reeves.

Senior constable Piening worked in the vehicle examination unit in Sydney, while sergeant Glossop finished his career in the Air Wing Unit based at Bankstown after a number of years in the Police Rescue Squad.

Both senior constable Piening and sergeant Glossop retired to the country and live near Young.

Inspector of Young Police Jacob Reeves presented a Retired Police Day pin to each of the retired officers, along with a trinket recognising their service.

Senior constable Craig Slater with retired Senior Constable John Piening, Retired Inspector Ronald Rogerson, Retired Sergeant John Glossop and probationary constable Klara Novak.

Inspector Rogerson and senior constable Piening received dress uniform insignia representing their respective ranks, while sergeant Glossop was given a silver chinstrap for a sergeant’s hat.

“We all respect our retired officers, it’s not just a throw away line,” Inspector Jacob Reeves said.

“We all have a lot of respect for those who have gone before us.”
