Field Operations Local Area Command Police Officer of the Year
Detective Senior Constable Jason Brooks, Cabramatta LAC
Det Snr Cst Jason Brooks attested from Goulburn Police Academy in August 2001 and was stationed at Cabramatta, where he remains today. I enjoy working with the people at Cabramatta. I've also been lucky to have worked with some skilled investigators. I enjoy the challenges of serious investigations that require a lot of effort; they tend to be more rewarding. And I like the team camaraderie that comes with being a police officer. My detective’s designation in 2007 was one of my most memorable moments, along with winning the community vote for Police Officer of Year for Cabramatta and Fairfield. I believe a good police officer should have a never give up attitude, an eye for detail and an ability to interact with people, whether they be victims or offenders. Honoured to be a finalist for this award, yet very embarrassed.
