‘Heartbreaking’: Suicide suspected reason for police officer death in South Australia

A respected female police officer was found dead at a police station. Now her cause of death has been revealed.

 

A respected female police officer found dead at a police station in South Australia is believed to have taken her own life in the women’s bathroom of the building.

The officer was found at Port Adelaide police station on Monday afternoon and police have previously confirmed the death was not being treated as suspicious.

The detective brevet sergeant, aged in her 30s, is believed to have taken her own life between 2pm and 3pm on Monday, 7News reports.

Online reports from eyewitnesses claim police officers inside the station at the time heard a loud bang within the building leading to the discovery of her body.

The Indigenous mother of two’s name and photos have not been revealed due to cultural reasons.

 

The woman moved from Whyalla to Adelaide, where she initially worked as a community constable. The role involved her helping police engage with First Nations and culturally diverse communities.

She was nominated for the City of Port Adelaide Enfield’s 2012 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Awards for her work within the First Nations community.

“(I) would like to help turn around the public’s perception of police officers from a negative to a positive,” she wrote as part of her nomination for the Person of the Year award.

“I love the variety in my work and I love getting the opportunity to help people by making the best out of a bad situation.

In her nomination blurb she also wrote about her passion for serving the community with her ultimate goal to see the Aboriginal community represented more in SA Police.

“She has shown a genuine concern and passion for the community in general and has had life experience which she shares openly with her peers,” the nomination reads.

“She stands up for what she believes in and is very passionate about her cultural heritage.”

In 2015 the woman was sworn in as a full-time police officer and was assigned to the family violence unit at Port Adelaide Police Station.

Four years later she married her wife, who is also a South Australian police officer.

 

The deceased police officer was the granddaughter of a celebrated Aboriginal writer and poet who had more than 61 works published throughout their career, Daily Mail Australia reports.

The grandmother is considered to be a “pioneer in First Nations Australia literature in South Australia”, becoming the first ever published Aboriginal female writer within the state, winning awards for her contribution to the arts.

South Australia Premier Peter Malinauskas said several tragedies had unfolded in South Australia recently and they were confronting.

“Anytime we see a tragedy of this nature involving anyone in our community it hurts,” Mr Malinauskas said.

Friends and fellow police officers have posted tributes to the officer on social media and expressing their shock over her sudden death.

“I just wish I could see and hear you one more time. You were loved by us all, miss you forever,” one person wrote on Facebook.

“R. I. P beautiful soul. If only we could hear her laugh again,” a second person said.

“Absolutely gutted … going to miss your bright bubbly face,” another said.

Condolences from strangers have also been coming in, with people thanking the police officer for her work.

“R.I.P. your shift is over, thank you for you service. Condolences to your family

I’m sorry, my thoughts and sympathies are with those grieving,” one person wrote

“My condolences to her family, friends and work colleagues…..Its sad to see a beautiful angel returning where she’s from. Hope her family, friends and colleagues are OK too,” another person commented.

The Acting Commissioner of Police Linda Williams has advised a Commissioner’s Inquiry will be undertaken into the circumstances surrounding this matter.

A coronial investigation also will be conducted into the tragedy.

Female cop’s heartbreaking last conversation with a colleague before she was found dead inside Port Adelaide police station

 

A respected police officer told a colleague ‘everything would be ok’ just hours before she was found dead inside Port Adelaide‘s police station.

A police commissioner’s inquiry and a coronial investigation have now been launched after the officer died at the station, in the city’s northwest, between 2pm and 3pm on Monday.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal the female police officer was a mum of two and Aboriginal.

She married her wife, who is also a South Australian police officer, in late 2019.

Police have confirmed the death is not being treated as suspicious but have not revealed the cause.

They have also requested media outlets not to publish the name or photos of the officer in question due to ‘cultural reasons’.

Reports from eyewitnesses online claim officers at the station heard a loud bang within the building before they discovered her body.

Devastated friends and colleagues have paid tribute to the tribute to the officer who was nominated for ‘Aboriginal Person of the Year’ in 2012 for her work within the First Nations community.

She was remembered as a ‘beautiful person’ who had an ‘infectious, loud laugh’ which could be heard ‘right across the station’.

One workmate said the officer told her ‘It will be OK, bestie’ during one of their last conversations on Monday.

‘You said it a thousand times to me over the years,’ her colleague wrote.

‘It doesn’t feel like anything will ever be OK again.

‘I am shattered. I loved you so much, but you knew that.

‘I will miss you forever.’

Another colleague recalled how kind she was when she first arrived at Port Adelaide and was struggling to adjust.

After the officer invited her out to socialise, they quickly bonded over their similarities –  their ‘terrible memories, distractibility and having both lost their fathers.

‘The first day I met you your kindness and caring nature shone through. You went out of your way to make us and the kids feel welcome with invitations to kindergym and the park,’ she said.

‘I loved working in the same office as you. Your laugh, the lolly jar addiction, your big caring heart and your cracking sense of humour, always taking the piss.

‘I loved your passion for your people. You were a proud First Nations woman and I loved your stories of your beloved ‘Gary’.

‘I learnt so much from you. You were such a light in my life.

‘I wish you knew how much you are loved.’

A third cop said the officer affectionately dubbed her and another colleague as the ‘angels’.

She said she would miss the officer’s bright bubbly face and hearing her say ‘well, well, well… if it isn’t the angels’ when she would walk by.

A former colleague added the officer’s ‘pain is now gone’ and she will never be forgotten by those she left behind.

‘Fly high and free sister in blue,’ she said.

‘Big hugs and love to your heartbroken family, RIP lovely.’

The tragedy has rocked the South Australian police community, which is still reeling just two months on from the alleged on-duty fatal shooting of Brevet Sergeant Jason Doig and alleged hit-and-run death of SA Police Commissioner’s son, Charlie Stevens.

Counselling support services have been offered to the officer’s colleagues.

Acting Commissioner Linda Williams has announced the woman’s death will be subjected to a police inquiry as well as a coronial investigation.

‘The tragedy at Port Adelaide is something that will impact so many people – family and friends, but also the entire police family and indeed the wider community,’ South Australia Police Association president Mark Carroll said.

‘Our colleague’s death will be investigated so that we can understand the cause of this devastating incident.

The state’s Police Minister Joe Szakacs also shared his grief in a statement.

‘My heartfelt condolences go to the family, friends and colleagues of the police officer,’ Mr Szakacs said.

‘Her tragic passing will be felt deeply, and grieved widely. I ask everyone to keep the police family in their thoughts.’
