Police officer killed in the line of duty
NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione has paid tribute to Senior Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson, killed in the line of duty on Thursday as an "excellent officer and a damn good bloke".
Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson, 45, was killed in an axe attack in Sydney's northwest while responding to a domestic dispute on Thursday afternoon.
The father of three was part of a police response to a neighbourhood dispute at a rural property in Scheyville Rd, Oakville, about 2pm on Thursday.
It's understood Det Anderson was seriously injured when he was separated from a number of other officers and struck in the back of the head with an axe.
He was treated at the scene by paramedics around 4.15pm, but later died at Hawkesbury Hospital.
Speaking outside the hospital on Thursday night, Police Commissioner Scipione said the police force had lost "one of its finest officers".
He described Det Anderson as a widely respected veteran of the force who came from a police family.
A 19-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman believed to be his mother were arrested at the scene.

NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell said it was a "devastating time" for Mr Anderson's family and colleagues.
He said he had spoken to Mr Scipione to convey his condolences to the entire police force.
"We are reminded far too often of the dangers the brave men and women of the police force make every day when they go to work," Mr O'Farrell said in a statement.
Two people have now been charged with murdering a Sydney police officer near Windsor.
The 19-year-old man and his 45-year-old mother were arrested at the scene in Oakville - after Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson was stabbed in the neck.
The officer was attending a long-standing neighbourhood dispute and leaves behind a wife and three children.
Police Commissioner Andrew Scippione says the pair was questioned for some time about what happened.

It makes me very sad and angry that a person who was just trying to help another family was taken from his own.
Shame on those who treat police with disrespect, particularly when they are trying to keep you safe.Sarah Wednesday 12 December, 2012 - 3:13 PM
It is horrible how every day so many hardworking people go to work to earn an honest living and get killed at work in factories, building sites, road crashes etc. They never come home again! With Christmas here spare a thought for their grieving families and all of these heros. What makes things unnecessarily much worse, in a lot of these tragic cases their ruined families get next to nothing compensation for their enormous, life changing loss.Daniel Friday 7 December, 2012 - 10:46 AM
