Commander hanging out the ‘gone fishing’ sign

THE North-West and West Coast’s most senior police officer will call into work for the last time on Sunday.

Commander Lauchland Avery, known among friends as Locky, will turn in his badge after serving the force and the region for 36 years.

Commander Avery joined the service in 1979 at the age of 19. He served in the Western District for five years and is respected by both the officers in his district and the community he serves.

Commissioner Darren Hine said Commander Avery was part of the fabric of the North-West community due to not only being born in the area but also serving 22 years in the district. “Commander Avery’s extensive experience over almost four decades includes emergency management during floods in Latrobe, Forth and Penguin in 2009 and work with the State Security Unit and Internal Investigations,” Commissioner Hine said.

Commissioner Hine said Commander Avery intended to hang out the “gone fishing” sign and devote more time to his family farm.
