Retirement of Detective Sergeant Gary Brodie
MR HUMPHRIES (Acting Chief Minister, Attorney-General, Minister for Justice and Community Safety and Minister Assisting the Treasurer) (6.33): Mr Speaker, I move:
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
Mr Speaker, I wanted to mention briefly today the retirement of one of Canberra's most experienced and specialist police officers. Detective Sergeant Gary Brodie retires this week after 33 years as a member of the Commonwealth Police and the Australian Federal Police, most of which have been spent serving the Canberra community.
Sergeant Brodie is currently the team leader of the AFP's Bomb Response Team. He has been a member of the team since 1986. His experience as a police officer is very wide-ranging. He has worked in such areas as the Sydney Airport Squad, the General Crime and Cheque Squad, the Crime Intelligence and Organised Crime Squad, and he performed duties with the 13th United Nations Police Contingent to Cyprus in 1976.
