How long have you lived in Myrtle­ford? Six years. What is your job? I am a po­lice­man, which I have been for 34 years. How did that come about? I was look­ing for a long-term ca­reer where I could help peo­ple within the com­mu­nity and it cer­tainly fit the bill.

What do you love about liv­ing in Myrtle­ford?

The peo­ple in­side the com­mu­nity, it is a very friendly com­mu­nity. What is the best case you’ve worked on?

In the 1990’s, we had a bloke in­fect­ing other peo­ple with HIV AID’s through sex­ual con­tact, and it was the world’s first con­vic­tion of crim­i­nal sex­ual trans­mis­sion of HIV AIDs. It was the big­gest case I have ever had to do, as it’d never been done be­fore.

What is a sig­nif­i­cant cur­rent is­sue that Myrtle­ford faces?

Em­ploy­ment and so­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple.

What is a sig­nif­i­cant world is­sue for you?

In this day in age, it is the ev­er­p­re­sent risk of ter­ror­ism. Young peo­ple get rad­i­cal­ized over.

If you could get any­one in the world to come to Myrtle­ford for din­ner, who would it be and why?

It would be Queen El­iz­a­beth the sec­ond, since she has been an en­dur­ing, sta­ble and in­flu­en­tial per­son for more than the last 60 years.
