In the wake of the killing of a police officer in Parramatta, the police union in New South Wales has vowed to keep their members safe.
President Gooley of the New South Wales Police Association said there will keep their members safe, and the Police Commissioner was helping them to do that.
He said the murder of Mr Cheng was the first time in New South Wales that law-enforcement officers were directly targeted in a terrorist act. Mr Gooley said “what changed on Friday night is that this is the first time in New South Wales that the New South Wales police have been directly targeted as part of the terror incident,”
The Police Union have said that they refuse to focus on the killer, and they will never mention the young man’s name again. Mr Gooley said he hoped that members of the community would do likewise.
The union has also launched a Legacy appeal for the family of the slain victim who had served in the police force for more than a decade.
