Annual Magenta Shores Women’s Day lunch

Retired Detective Debra Wallace, known to those in her field as the ‘Gangbuster’, will be the guest speaker at the Central Coast Community and Business Women’s Network Annual International Women’s Day Luncheon at Magenta.

Debra Wallace’s story spans a career that took her to places that had been traditionally the domain of men.

Her work saw her come face to face with Cabramatta’s heroin trade, the criminal activities of bikie gangs and later into the world of Middle Eastern-backed organised crime. She was part of Police team that developed Strike Force Raptor.

Since retirement, she has been the subject of a biography written by Mark Morri and regularly makes media appearances on the ABC.

She has been described as a woman who rose to the top of her game with “grace, humour and an iconic sense of style.”

The Annual International Women’s Day Luncheon, organised by Community & Business Women’s Network, takes place on March 8 at Pullman Magenta Shores Resort.

Chosen raffle charity for this event is local women’s service “Because We Care Boutique”. Men and women are welcome.
