Late March saw the posthumous awarding of the National Police Service Medal to the late Sergeant John Cain with his extremely proud wife and police legatee Trish Cain accepting the medal in the presence of her daughters Sarah and Rachel at the Victoria Police North West Metro - Division 5, Honours and Awards Presentations held at the Heidelberg Golf Club. John was an amazing member, serving from 1974 until his retirement, due to ill health, in March 1993. He was a well-known policing identity in an around the northern suburbs of Melbourne, especially at the former West Heidelberg Police Station where he served for a number of years. In his later years within Victoria Police, John’s key focus was on Community Policing.
