Our Top Cop Hangs Up His Hat


Nick’s resignation sent shock-waves throughout the New South Wales and Sydney community. Many prominent community leaders and members of parliament from across the political and social spectrum have expressed their regret at this news.

The Australian Coptic Movement Association is sorry to hear of Deputy NSW Police Commissioner Mr. Nick Kaldas’ retirement from the police force, which he announced on Friday 4th May 2016. Mr Kaldas’ retirement is a great loss to both the Police Force and to the people of NSW.

Mr. Kaldas’ illustrious career in the Police Force is supported by a 34-year track record of experience and dedication both at home and abroad. His decorated career included a secondment to the UN to investigate the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. He also worked in Iraq, helping local police rebuild the Iraqi police force in the wake of the Iraq War.

In NSW Nick’s career included stints as head of the homicide squad, gangs squad and deputy commissioner of field operations.

It is obvious just how well respected and revered Mr Kaldas is, both within and outside of the Force. Nick has dedicated himself to serving the people of NSW and in doing so, has greatly esteemed the Coptic community.
The Australian Coptic Movement is incredibly proud of Mr Kaldas’ achievements. We recognise how great a loss his retirement will be, but we take this opportunity to reflect on his wonderful achievements and thank him for his tireless work and dedication to his service. Mr Kaldas can hold his head up high. We are extremely proud and blessed to call him a member of our community and we wish him well in his future endeavours.

It has been said that Mr Kaldas is the best police commissioner NSW never had – we couldn’t agree more.
