Constable Males spent the whole of the period of his service in the police force in Hobart and in the vicinity of Government House.

He performed duty in close touch with members of the Royal Family when they visited the state, several Governors-General and Governors, and leading members of the Commonwealth judiciary, and was always punctilious in observance of his duties.
