October 2015 Luncheon – Tuesday, 11 October 2016

october-luncheon-2016-slide

The Association is delighted to announce that a representative from PolAir will speak on the operations of the police air wing at its October luncheon.

Polair is the NSW Police Aviation Support Branch providing a range of services including serious, major and organised crime, counter terrorism matters, crime operations, search and rescue and the investigation of aviation fatalities across New South Wales.

As recently as 31 July 2016, PolAir 5 was involved in the search and rescue of two 7-year-old girls who went missing in the central-west NSW on 30 July 2016.  The family had established a campsite at Ophir, about 25 Km north of Orange and spent the day exploring the bush tracks surrounding their campsite.  Shortly before 4.00 pm all returned except the two girls. Police from the Local Area Command were contacted along with the State Emergency Services and the Rural Fire but the search was unsuccessful. The next day PolAir was called to assist in the search. The girls were located at about 11.30 am by ground crews and were taken on board PolAir and conveyed to a command post for an emotional reunion with family.

The Committee of Management looks forward to welcoming you at this very special lunch meeting.
