Top NSW cop involved in William Tyrrell case charged

A former top NSW detective who was involved in the William Tyrrell case has been charged with several offences.

It comes just a matter of weeks after Gary Jubelin revealed he had quit the force after being taken off the William Tyrell case while he was investigated over misconduct allegations.

Today, NSW Police confirmed the former Detective Chief Inspector has been charged with four offences under the Surveillance Devices Act.


“Following a number of complaints, the Professional Standards Command commenced an investigation in 2018 overseen by the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission, into the conduct of the officer during the course of his operational duties,” the statement read.

“Those inquiries disclosed a number of recordings allegedly made at locations in Parramatta and Kendall in New South Wales.”

The 57-year-old was issued with a Court Attendance Notice and is due to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on July 30.

In addition to leading the fresh search for missing three-year-old William Tyrrell, Mr Jubelin was involved in investigating the death of Sydney man Matthew Leveson and the disappearance of three Aboriginal children in Bowraville across his 34-year career.
