Peter Ryan
Australia Crest

Top cop in Sydney and New South Wales.

Police Commissioner Ryan is on an annual salary of $425,000, about twice that of Premier Bob Carr.

In July 1999, he turned down the chance to be London's Commissioner of Metropolitan Police. When asked about his commitment to his current job, he said: "The proof of the pudding is that I'm back here, back in Australia, back to do the job".

The year 2000 will be a test for him with security at the Olympic Games being of paramount importance.
