Wednesday this week I had the honour, on behalf of all our residents, to attend a very moving ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the murder of on-duty police officer, Senior Constable Glenn McEnallay.
Senior Constable McEnallay, who was based in our City, died needlessly at the all-too young age of 26. Council created the Glenn McEnallay Reserve in Sutherland Street, Mascot as a tribute to his memory. Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione joined officers from the local command in remembering Glenn, his service and his ultimate sacrifice.
A fine police officer, with his whole life ahead of him, died while serving our community and our State. That 10 years have passed have not dimmed the memory of Glenn McEnallay and the sympathies we feel for his family and his fellow members of the NSW Police Force.
