Statement on Ron Iddles OAM

Detective Senior Sergeant Ron Iddles OAM has served the Victorian community for decades with selflessness, humility and courage.

Known as one of the most effective murder investigators in Australia, Ron has helped solve hundreds of homicides and in doing so has brought criminals to justice and given comfort to grief stricken families.

As secretary of the Police Association, Ron has been a fierce advocate for his members and has campaigned vigorously for more police on our streets.

Ron successfully negotiated an EBA that was good for his members, good for the community and did not require industrial action.

Already highly decorated, Ron was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in 2015 for recognition of his work protecting and serving the community.

The Liberal Nationals Coalition wishes Ron, his wife Colleen and his children all the success in the future.
