Example text

Unfortunately, the first long-lasting commissioner—the gambler, drinker and womaniser Captain Frederick Charles Standish—was, unsurprisingly, not a success. In his native England there was said to be no more popular man on a racecourse, and in 1852 he sold his mortgaged properties to pay his gaming debts and set sail for the colonies. He became assistant commissioner of the goldfields and in September 1858 was appointed chief commissioner of police in Victoria, at a salary of £1200. He had already been rejected for the appointment in 1853, when he applied under an assumed name.

As for the Chinese immorality, that was the seduction of European girls, promiscuous intercourse with European women and opium smoking. The commission reported favourably on the Chinese community, which it considered singularly peaceable and generally law abiding. It also approved of the way the Chinese dealt with their women. As for the allegations of immorality: there was no real evidence of seduction, the girls who lived with Chinese men were happy; and prostitutes were treated better than the drudges of some white families.

When at the beginning of the 1860s the New South Wales police system was being remodelled by Sir Charles Cowper, Edmund Walcott Fosbery was offered and accepted the position of secretary to the department and acting inspector-general, arriving in Sydney in 1862. Born in England in 1824, he had been a company secretary before he migrated to Victoria and the Mount Alexander goldfields, later joining the Victorian police force as a gentleman-cadet. That year riots on the goldfields at Lambing Flat (near Young) in New South Wales saw police and the military deployed to restore peace and led to a new push for more effective policing in the colony.
