Nine news reporter Sophie Upcroft said he was farewelled in an intimate ceremony which was broadcast live to a larger contingent of officers.
“They all came together to remember their friend and also to pay tribute to him,” she told Bill McDonald 4BC Drive.
“It is a huge shock to the police force to lose on of their own in the line of duty, and you could certainly feel that emotion today”.
