Police appalled after Wall of Remembrance desecrated in Sydney … again

THE NSW Police Wall of Remembrance at the Domain in Sydney has been vandalised for the second time in six months.

A ranger contacted police just after 4.15pm today after he noticed 15 panels at the memorial had been damaged.

Police say an unknown object was used to scratch over the NSW Police Crest and panels containing the names of deceased officers.


Officers from Sydney City Local Area Command are at the scene speaking to witnesses and conducting a search of the area.

An investigation is underway and police are appealing for information in an attempt to identify and locate the person or persons responsible.

It’s the second time in six months the Wall of Remembrance has been targeted by vandals.

Sydney City Local Area Commander, Superintendent David Donohue, says he is appalled the memorial has been damaged again.

“This memorial is a sacred place for all NSW Police Officers and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice whilst serving the people of this state,” Supt Donohue said.

“The person who has done this knows who they are. Police will review CCTV footage and investigations will continue until those responsible are caught.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information that may assist are urged to come forward and contact Sydney City Police Station on (02) 9265 6499 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
