Superintendent detective Deborah Wallace is the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Corrimal's 60th anniversary celebration at Villa D'Oro Function Centre on May 24.
Supt Wallace has spent the last 34 years in the NSW Police Force.
She has been the commander of the Asian Organised Crime Squad, the Middle Eastern Crime Squad and more recently the Gangs Squad.
Supt Wallace started as a probationary constable at Blacktown in 1983, was involved in the investigation of the Anita Cobby murder case. She progressively worked her way up through the ranks in a career that has also included roles in Internal Affairs and the Police Integrity Commission.
Corrimal Rotary member Ruth Milne said to serve the community for 60 years was a splendid achievement the club was proud of. She said it was made up of humble people who labour long hours and devote their skills and time to the local and international community.
"The greatest achievement has been the 99.9 per cent eradication of polio".
Rotary International has helped reduce the number of children contracting the dreaded disease annually from 350,000 to just four cases reported world wide this year.
