HERO ON THE DOUBLE
‘It is so hard to put into words the joy I get going to work’
Troy Bulpett has scooped the pool at the St Marys police officer of the year awards. He received the peer award for a $4 million drug bust and
the community award for trying desperately to save a baby’s life.
THE 2015 St Marys police officer of the year award night was about one man.
In a first for the awards, Leading Senior Constable Troy Bulpett was named St Marys LAC Police Officer of the Year in both the peer and community sectors.
Senior Constable Bulpett was nominated after two impressive feats during 2015.
In April, Senior Constable Bulpett stopped a car in St Marys for a traffic infringement. After becoming suspicious he searched the car and uncovered more than $4 million worth of drugs, including 39kg of MDMA, 3kg of cannabis and 4kg of heroin.
Later in the year Senior Constable Bulpett responded to a three-month-old child not breathing in North St Marys and performed CPR on the child until ambulances responded.
Unfortunately, the child died, but the family commended Senior Constable Bulpett’s efforts and nomi- nated him in the community category.
Senior Constable Bulpett said the award was the best moment in his career.
“I am extremely proud … it was so surprising I was hoping to get one award but had no idea I would get both,” he said.
“We work in the best LAC ever, it is extremely busy and it is so hard to put into words the joy I get going to work. We get pretty well smashed and without an amazing unit there is so much more work we would have to do.”
We work in the best LAC ever.
It is extremely busy and it is so hard to put into words the joy I
get going to work
