Ice Bucket Chal­lenge a fair cop for cause

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Kensington -

FOUR po­lice of­fi­cers were put on ice re­cently as the world­wide Ice Bucket Chal­lenge phe­nom­e­non reached all the way to the Kens­ing­ton po­lice sta­tion.

The four par­tic­i­pants – De­tec­tive Sergeant Rob Jamieson, Se­nior Sergeant Ash Goy, De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Si­mone Parke and Sergeant Brad Richard­sScully – were soaked in in ice and wa­ter.

It all started when Det Sgt Jamieson was nom­i­nated by a col­league.

He then spread the word, get­ting the oth­ers on board as the event gath­ered mo- men­tum.

The buck­ets were large and their uni­forms were soaked but all agreed it was for a good cause.

They raised more than $300.

Who’s next? Well they have nom­i­nated fam­ily mem­bers and friends, but also Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Karl O’Cal­laghan.
