"Today we said farewell to our much loved Aboriginal Community Liaison Officer ACLO, Noel King," they command posted.
"Noel has been an ACLO in the Richmond LAC for the past 15 years.
"In that time he has helped bridge the gap between the Aboriginal Community and NSW Police.
"He has helped young people with implementing crime prevention programs and spent numerous hours behind the wheel driving the ACLO van.
"When the kids see the van pull up they all know Uncle Noel is there to help (or give them what's for).
"So Noel, we thank you and we'll miss you."
Within an hour of the Facebook post 16 people, mostly family and friends congratulated Mr King for his valuable community contribution.
