BRIEF FACTS OF ACTS OF BRAVERY BY POLICE

The facts, briefly, associated with acts of bravery performed by Police during the year 1967 are as set out hereunder.

10.  On 14th June, 1967, at North Richmond, Constable 1st Class William Andrew Shute,whilst seated in a Departmental motor car, was confronted by a man whom he had followed.

The man held a loaded sawn-off rifle at the Constable’s head. Whilst this was happening the Constable endeavoured to draw his pistol. The man directed the Constable to surrender his pistol. The Constable refused and removed the ignition keys from the Police car. He then alighted from the car and when he did so the man shot him on a number of occasions in the leg.

The man was later arrested and charged with maliciously wounding the Constable and other offences.

Sgt Bill Shuts was the traffic sgt at Hornsby when I was a cadet and later a P/Constable. I recall that he had a driver training business in retirement. Nice fella.
