Len Snee - a quiet achiever
Len Snee’s policing passion was the eradication of cannabis.
As the senior community constable in rural Taradale, Len got to know the bush and forestry areas backwards.
“I never knew with any certainty what he was doing,” says Len’s station supervisor, Sergeant Freddy Van Duuren. “He would disappear and be in the forest checking plots.”
He was a quiet achiever who produced results. Freddy confidently ranks Len as one of the country’s leading investigators in outdoor growing.
“I told him a number of times that he didn’t realise what weight was put on his opinions. He was an absolute guru around cannabis cultivation,” says Freddy.
Len became a reserve member of the Armed Offenders Squad (AOS) in 1987 and a full member in 1989. He was an active AOS member when he died.
