Sharon’s leav­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

AF­TER three-and-a-half years in Port Dou­glas, re­spected se­nior con­sta­ble Sharon But­ler is switch­ing her uni­form for plain clothes and trans­fer­ring to Cairns.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble But­ler is trans­fer­ring into a dif­fer­ent di­vi­sion and into street wear as she gears up for a new chal­lenge.

All the same she said she had thor­oughly en­joyed work­ing in Port Dou­glas.

“It’s time for a change, I’ve been do­ing gen­eral du­ties for eight-years-now and I’ve loved liv­ing in this town and have made lots of friends,” she said.

“A fond memory was an elderly lady had lost her tour group and was fran­tic be­cause she didn’t want to be left be­hind and I put her in the front seat and we drove around un­til I found her group.. she was re­ally ap­pre­cia­tive.

“You wouldn’t want to police any­where else, for gen­eral du­ties this is the most beau­ti­ful small town and they re­spect you as a per­son and as a police of­fi­cer.

“Thank you ev­ery­one for your sup­port and for al­ways be­ing wel­com­ing and gra­cious.”
