Goulburn Police Station Inspection Time: Commissioner’s Visit a Chance To Thank the Troops

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione joined Deputy Premier and Minister for Justice and Police Troy Grant for a visit in Goulburn last week as part of a whirlwind regional tour.

“It was a chance to catch up and say thank you to the troops, to encourage them and let them know their work is valued,” Comm. Scipione said of their Tuesday night stopover.

“It’s also a way to get back in touch with reality.

“These Police out there on the streets, they are the real heroes who keep us safe.”

He told the Post the future was bright for policing in Goulburn – with ongoing minor upgrades to the Academy and a strong, experienced team at the Station.

While in town last week, Comm. Scipione awarded Goulburn General Administrative Support Officer (GASO) Rebecca Doughty with a special award for scoring 100 per cent in a customer service survey.
