Leading Senior Constable Chris Goyne has joined the team at Rochester police station.
Leading Sen. Constable Goyne has replaced recently-retired Steve Dempsey, having spent several months in an Acting Sergeant role at Rochester.
Leading Sen. Constable Goyne has been in the police force for the past 24 years, having been the officer-in-charge at Gunbower for the past 13 years.
The four-officer team at Rochester now boasts a combined experience of more than 90 years.
Born and bred in Dimboola, Leading Sen. Constable Goyne was destined to become a police officer, as his father, uncle and cousin were all officers.
‘‘I was attracted to the role because it offered job satisfaction, a regular income and the opportunity to see plenty of Victoria,’’ he said.
‘‘Over two decades later I still love my job.’’
Married with two children attending secondary school, Leading Sen. Constable Goyne started in Melbourne at city west police station and in the western suburbs.
‘‘I was also posted to the protective security group, which gave me plenty of experience in various stations across the city.’’
He spent three years at Tallangatta, before the Gunbower position became vacant.
‘‘I’ll miss Gunbower as it was a great community to be part of but the opportunity to work in Rochester is something I will relish,’’ he said.
‘‘I chose Rochester because having been here as a reliever I have a pretty good understanding of the area and the issues that we face here.’’
He has issued a warning to those who drive above the speed limit.
