Tele/ The Bowral News: Southern Highlands’ most influential people – #4 John Klepczarek


It would be hard to find a police officer more passionate about his community than NSW Police Chief Inspector John Klepczarek. He loves the community in the region and he’s appreciative of the support that the public provides police.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to serve the community of the Southern Highlands. This has by far been the most enjoyable command I’ve had the pleasure of working in,” he said.

Chief Insp Klepczarek was invaluable to the bushfire efforts last year, taking an active role in discussion and planning, and ensuring smooth communication between government and non-government services.

He was awarded a NSW Community Service Award and an Australian Police Medal last year in recognition of his service to the community.

“Just to see how the community banded together during the fires, there was a clear message that ‘this is our town, these are our neighbours, and we’re all in it together’. That’s heartwarming,” the Bowral resident said.
