Over 30 staff from around the Agency attended a farewell morning tea for Lorelle Pappalardo on Monday 2 July 2012, who left the Agency after 16 years service to join her husband in managing the family owned business, Northern Star Homes.
Director, Business Improvement and Planning Branch, Katherine Van Gurp, presented Lorelle with a service plaque and letter from the Commissioner noting her contribution to the Agency. Lorelle commenced her career in the NTPFES on 29 April 1996 in the North Crime Division and worked in a range of units across police and corporate areas before ultimately settling in roles focused on auditing, information reporting and risk management.
Over the last 2 years, Lorelle’s dedication and commitment to risk management has been evident and together with her technical knowledge has raised the bar at NTPFES to ensure all staff are aware of their risk management obligations and have access to appropriate training and information resources. All in attendance agreed that Lorelle would be sorely missed and wished her all the best with her business venture. Lorelle was also presented with a card signed by many and a $250 gift voucher.
Lorelle said that she had enjoyed her time with the NTPFES and had been privileged to work with many wonderful people.
