10th Anniversary of the passing of NSW Police Officer Chief Inspector Paul Baker

Today we remember our good friend Paul Marshall Baker.

Paul Baker joined the NSW Police Force in 1972. As a police officer, he is most notably remembered for his courage and devotion to duty during the Star Hotel Riot in Newcastle in 1979 and for the dedication he displayed as a Peer Support Officer.

In the late 1970’s he became active in the Police Association as a branch official becoming a delegate to conference in 1983. In 1994 he was elected to the Executive and served continuously for 8 years until he retired in 2002.

In 2002 Paul was promoted to the rank of chief inspector. He died in office on 17 July 2007.

“Paul was an outstanding and committed Executive member with a passion for the welfare of the membership. His service to the NSW Police Force and the Association will always be remembered”  

-PANSW Secretary Peter Remfrey
