TWEED Heads policeman Sergeant Garry Jardine is closing in on retirement after serving in the NSW Police Force for more than 43 years.

Sgt Jardine is the station manager-supervisor at Tweed where he has worked for the past 15 years.

No doubt his colleagues will give him a memorable send-off when he finishes his final shift on July 28.

Sgt Jardine says he is looking forward to having more time to spend with his wife Jennifer, travelling overseas, being involved with Toastmasters and riding his 650cc motorbike.

"The job has been a rewarding experience but all good things come to end sometime," Sgt Jardine said.

Sgt Jardine did his training at the old police cadet centre at Redfern in Sydney in 1969 and served at numerous inner west stations before relocating to Wellington in country NSW.

"I spent nine years out there before being transferred to Tweed in 1997 - Jennifer and I love it up here and Tweed will remain our home," he said.

Sgt Jardine said he and his wife will have an overseas holiday to celebrate his retirement.

"Our son is working in London and we plan to catch up with him during the trip," he said.
