It's the end of the line today for a highly respected local police officer.
Superintendent Danny Sullivan is leaving the top job at Brisbane Water to head north.
"It's one of those mixed emotions days," Sullivan says. "I've been with the Local Area Command for just over five years now, and I have to say it's been a highlight of my career so far, but from Monday I take up the (same) post at Lake Macquarie LAC."
Monday will see new Superintendents start at both Brisbane Water and Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Commands, with Anthony Joice and John Gralton to fill the respective roles.
"My role in the Police force is one where we are moved around quite a bit - Brisbane Water represented my third Command as a Superintendent," Sullivan explains (Joice is coming from the Mudgee LAC in the Central West to fill his shoes, and Gralton form Newcastle.).
"Because I'd been there for over five years, it was an important time both professionally and personally to look at a change."
While the LACs will now be known as 'Police Districts', as part of a statewide overhaul of the force.
