Detective Senior Constable Reginald Ernest Henderson was an extraordinary police officer. In a career spanning 38 years, Reg apprehended more than 3,000 offenders, identifying many only by photographs he kept in a little notebook. He was also known as "the Falcon of The Force" and "Eagle Eye Henderson".
Reg was more of a diplomat than a detective; well-groomed, quiet, didn't drink or smoke and acted as close personal security for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11, the Queen Mother, Prince Phillip, Princess Alexandra and the USA President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Former Victoria Police Sergeant Newton C Reynolds worked with Reg Henderson as a cadet. After leaving the job, Newton decided to write a book;"Henderson is the name" as a tribute to a man he deeply admires.
