After 36-plus years as a policeman, senior constable Mark Ellison, has called it a day.
Senior constable Ellison, from the Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, joined the NSW Police Force in 1980.
On Thursday afternoon at Tweed Heads police station, he was ‘marched out’ of the station, a tradition on retirement of a long-serving officer.
Senior Constable Ellison first served at Petersham police station in Sydney for nine years before transferring to Tweed Heads.
He served the community from there for 26-and-a-half years performing general duties before his announced retirement.
