Flags outside police stations across the Mid West and Gascoyne were flown at half-mast on Monday following the death of Constable Anthony Woods in the line of duty. Tributes have poured in for the 28-year-old officer, with flags flown at half-mast at every police station in WA to honour him. Const. Woods died in hospital on Sunday following a four-day fight for his life after he was crushed under an allegedly stolen car that had reversed over him while he tried to arrest the driver in Ascot on Thursday. Police Commissioner Col Blanch said Const. Woods, from the Belmont Police Station, was “more than a wonderful, dedicated, passionate police officer”, he was a loving and much-loved husband, son, brother and uncle. “Only last month, he finished his probation, which was a time for celebration and a wonderful career ahead of him,” he said. “You did your duty, mate — we will remember.” In a statement, Const. Woods’ wife Emily said the family was shattered at the loss and their pain was “indescribable”. “Anthony will be remembered as a funny, hard-working man who loved the West Coast Eagles and mucking around with his mates,” she wrote. “He brought light and laughter to every situation, and his wicked sense of humour is irreplaceable.” Const. Woods is the 88th WA police officer to die in the line of duty. Mr Blanch said the death had hit particularly hard because Const. Woods was injured doing something almost every officer would have done in their career. The man allegedly behind the wheel of the car — 23-year-old Reagan Ainslie Chown — was on Monday charged with murder.
