In support of the Police Family your Association with NSW Police Legacy has set up a fund for the family of Sgt Geoffrey Richardson killed in a motor vehicle accident on the weekend.

The details are:

NSW Police Legacy Appeal

BSB: 815 000

A/C: 282951S1 omit S1 if not transferring from a Police Bank account

(The S1 is only used for Police Bank to Police Bank transfers.)

 Members wishing to donate to the family can also do so via the GoFundraise site:

 Links to the fundraising site have also been added to the PANSW website homepage.

The 43-year-old Sergeant (Class 272 – 18 Years Service), who’s wife is Senior Constable Margaret Richardson (Nee King), was a much-loved husband and father with two young sons Patrick aged seven and Aiden five months of age.

As many members would be aware, Sgt Richardson was killed on his way to help colleagues engaged in a pursuit in the Hunter Valley, NSW.

It’s at these times the strength of the police family is fortified as we rally together to support the family and loved ones impacted by this tragic loss.

Like any member of the emergency services would know – it takes a great deal of courage to leave your own family behind to protect those you have never met on a daily basis.

It takes a particular type of person to step forward, often into harm’s way, and commit himself or herself to such a job, and to give up peace of mind to preserve it for others.

Our thoughts are with our fallen colleague, his family and friends and fellow officers at Port Stephens Local Area Command during this difficult time.


Yours faithfully

Mark Morey
