100 Years of Women in WA Police

This morning I had the honour of receiving an official 100 Years of Women in WA Police commemorative pin from Donnybrook Police.

This is a great addition to the collection. As a serving police officer I knew how hard my female colleagues worked to serve their community. And how challenging it could be working in a male dominated environment. Really pleased that I can include this pin in the collection as recognition of all of the women who have made such a significant contribution to WA Police, both past and present.

Acknowledging 100 years of women in policing this year is a fantastic initiative, and something everyone should get behind.

Some months ago I was interviewed on the phone by Bill ‘Swampy’ Marsh, a fairly well known author of Australian yarns. He told me he was compiling a book on outback policemen.

I related some of my experiences while at Gascoyne Junction in the late 70s and, to be honest, hadn’t thought much more about it.

PW_66Fast forward a few months and a copy of the book Great Australian Outback Police Stories arrived in the mail. And it turns out my interview has been turned into a chapter, affectionately titled ‘Policeman-the-bastard’.

It’s a great book with some fascinating tales of working as a copper in the bush. I could really relate to some of the experiences of the other contributors and it brings back some very fond memories of my time in regional WA.

I strongly encourage you to check it out – it’s available online and in all good book stores. And of course there is a copy taking pride of place in Policeman’s Way.

Feel free to drop by and have a read over a cuppa. You might just have to listen to some of the stories that didn’t make it into the book.




South Western Times…again!

This month I had a journalist from South Western Times come back to Policeman’s Way for another feature on the collection. I was happy to have them back and thrilled they managed to capture my passion (read: obsession) for collecting police memorabilia!

Happy reading! And if you’re interesting in coming and having a look at the collection be sure to get in contact. I’d love to hear from you.

Police News

I am really excited to say that Police News, the magazine for the WA Police Union, has featured Policeman’s Way in its February edition. This is particularly exciting because it was a chance for me to update my former colleagues on just how big the collection has become!
