Mr GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (10:11): Today I contribute some very happy and some very sad news, both from within the police family. Firstly, the sad news. We lost a member of our blue
family this year—another one lost to suicide. It is just heartbreaking. Nathan Warrick was a great man and a great copper. I worked for a brief period of time with Nathan at Wyndham North police station when it first opened. As he was more senior than me, I relied upon him for guidance, advice and direction on more than one occasion. At all times Nathan was more than happy to help and chip in when the workload was becoming overwhelming. Clearly the challenges and struggles that Nathan was experiencing became too much. I have said it before and I will say it again: we need to be doing much, much more to support our frontline workers, even those who have left the job. They put their lives on the line every single day for the safety of the community, and the least we can do is everything in our power to ensure their safety and wellbeing. There should be no-one left behind. Nathan was one of a kind and will be sorely missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
