The staff, officers and family and friends of Sergeant David Marks and Sen Constable Marlene Fisher gathered on Friday morning April 16 at the Coolum Police Station to officially ‘pipe’ out the long serving officers and bid them farewell as they sign off from their policing careers. Officer In Charge Hardy Wirth said that both officers were well known in the community and had collectively contributed to the community for more than 25 years. Sen Constable Marlene Fisher said her career spanned 44 years with QPS and she enjoyed every bit of the job – even though it did have its ups and downs. An avid campaigner in the field of domestic violence, Sen Constable Fisher worked tirelessly to better the outcomes for those affected. Both officers will now enjoy a little bit of down time and not having to do shift work.
