An occasion arose recently where we had to contact the Byron Bay police to address a matter which we needed them to attend to. This was done expediently and efficiently.
In appreciation of their assistance, we wanted to deliver a carton of quality meat to Sgt Jack Keogh and his team in the hopes that they could enjoy it for a barbecue in the near future. We received a phone call from Sgt Keogh. He informed us that in his 42 years of police service, he simply couldn’t and wouldn’t accept gifts. Sgt Keogh then requested that if possible it be donated to a local charity.
Byron Shire residents are truly blessed to have a police officer in their town with such high morals and community spirit. We have no doubt that he has set an exceptional example for his fellow officers as well as all public servants in general.
What a wonderful country we would have if all of our political departments had a representative like Jack Keogh. As they say, you can’t buy a good reputation.
