As the couple gathered with friends and family, things soon changed. The festivities turned into a nightmare when Trimmer fell and suffered a fatal injury to his neck. Despite the immediate efforts of those present to save him, their attempts were in vain.

“Everything was done to try and save him, but it wasn’t to be, and I know everyone that was involved are really, really hurting. I think they wish they could just wake up from this nightmare,” Commissioner Col Blanch said.

Liam Trimmer’s journey to Australia began a decade ago when he moved from the UK. He was a graduate of the Joondalup Police Academy in 2013. He quickly made a name for himself as a committed officer with a passion for community service.

His move to Kalgoorlie in 2017 marked a new chapter in his life. He became a beloved member of the local rugby team and joined the ranks of the Gang Crime Squad and the tactical response group.

Commissioner Blanch described him as an “extraordinary officer” who “loved helping the community.” Trimmer’s death is not just a personal tragedy to his loved ones. It is also a significant loss for Western Australian policing.

“A very, very confident, capable young man with his whole life ahead of him, and that’s how sad this is,” Blanch said. The police union, represented by Paul Gale, paid tribute to Trimmer. They highlighted the profound impact his loss has had on the “Blue family.”

“Every time a death occurs for a police officer, it doesn’t matter how, it really does rock the core,” Gale said. In response to this tragedy, the welfare division has mobilized to help those affected. They are also preparing a report for the coroner.

Beyond the uniform, Liam was remembered by friends as a beacon of skill and humor. His passion and dedication to his role were unmatched, leaving a void that will be hard to fill.

“In my opinion, society can ill afford to lose guys like Liam…those who have the courage to charge into the furnace on a daily basis, dealing with the ‘heavy duty’ side of policing,” his friend and coworker posted online.

The police community and his loved ones reel from this huge loss. However, the legacy of Senior Constable Liam Trimmer will stay on. He lived to serve others, with the courage to face the challenging parts of policing head-on.
