Lockington's Australia Day Ambassador Bill Horman.


Lockington’s Australia Day ambassador, Bill Horman, is looking forward to meeting the community.

He said he enjoyed getting to know the people who make country towns tick.

Mr Horman said he would roll up his sleeves and ‘‘jump behind the barbecue and turn a few sausages’’ so he had the opportunity to talk to the volunteers.

He said he was a proud Australian and it was ‘‘about time we talked up what a great place it is’’.

He spoke about how volunteers banded together in times of emergency and said country people in particular did a good job at volunteering.

Mr Horman had a long and distinguished police, law enforcement and emergency services career.

He was Victoria Police’s deputy commissioner of operations, commissioner of Vanuatu Police, deputy director with the Australian Bureau of Criminal Intelligence and commissioner of Tasmania Police.

He worked for many years on various committees involved with road safety and community safety as well as crime, violence and injury prevention.

He now runs his own consultancy and network services business.
