Inspector Jason Overland
Jason is the Central Patrol Inspector, Sunshine Coast District, and manages the delivery of policing services to Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Sippy Downs, Nambour and Palmwoods. He was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast and left to commence his policing career when he graduated from Caloundra State High School in 1984. Jason has spent the majority of his service as a Detective in specialist and covert units and on external secondments to other agencies such as the (then) Criminal Justice Commission, Queensland Crime Commission and the Queensland Crime and Misconduct Commission. He was an investigator at Ethical Standards Command before being appointed to his current role in 2013. Along the way Jason has completed some study and holds undergraduate (Bachelor Degrees) in Justice (QUT) and Business, has postgraduate qualifications in finance and leadership, and is currently putting the finishing touches on his MBA at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
Jason is married to the love of his life, has three adult children and a groodle, and when he is not working he likes to keep fit, play with race cars, surf and play music with his friends in their little 80s cover band ‘The Flying Pigs’.
Jason has a strong belief that policing needs to move into the prevention space to be most effective and I feels that as a community we need to invest in our young people and any investment we make in this area will be repaid many times over.
Sea FM Morning Show Hosts,
BarRat and Heidi
Heidi Latcham is one part of the successful breakfast radio team of BarRat and Heidi at 91.9 Sea FM. This Sunshine Coast local spent her earlier years attending Buderim Mountain Primary School before attending Maroochydore State High. You may also know her from her time on Channel 9’s Married at First Sight but, there is so much more to this lovely lady.
Heidi first began her radio career in 2003 and in 2005 she won MTV’s Search for a VJ which saw her hosting the music show Total Request Live. Heidi is also a qualified Beauty Therapist, Makeup Artist and Holistic Health Coach.
Here are a few things that Heidi loves… Space as in the Solar System and planets, spending time at the beach, the movie Avatar, her taste in music is a little less current than the songs she plays daily on her breakfast show with Michael Bolton being mentioned but, we don’t hold that against her, Humidity which no doubt enhances her amazing curls, and lastly Love – Heidi loves love!
BarRat is the other half of the breakfast radio duo that is BarRat and Heidi at 91.9 Sea FM. He currently lives with his family in the beautiful suburb of Buderim. Trying to get information on BarRat is tricky because even though he is someone who talks for a living, he is not a fan of talking about himself.
Here is a little info on the guy that we were able to uncover… His name is not actually BarRat (I know we were shocked too), but Adam Barratt. He is a husband to Kylie and a father to two adorable little people with whom he loves to spend any free time he has drinking milkshakes and exploring all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer.
Here are a few additional things that BarRat loves… a good beer, especially craft beers, if there’s no beer, he loves a good red wine, he’s a proud supporter of the Manly Sea Eagles (but we don’t hold that against him) and he’s passionate about the Sunshine Coast Falcons and local footy.
