Barnett was the local police sergeant for Summer Bay. A portly man aged in his early 40s, Barnett was a fair cop, no pun intended, and even had a sense of humour. He was there the day Sam Barlow shot his wife Kerry Barlow dead. Sam had threatened to shoot Barnett but he said it is not worth spending 30 years in jail for. In October 1988, Barnett investigated a robbery at The Macklin Group.Bob had a son Craig Barnett, who attended the local Summer Bay High School
Barnett was still living in the local area in 1990. What became of him after is unknown.
As of 2017, Barnett will have retired from the police force years ago. He would be aged about 72 years of age now.
Birthday: About 1945
Full Name: Robert Barnett
Even though just a recurring character, Barnett appeared in the pilot episode in January 1988, so does count as an original character, he was often popping in to grab a meat pie, as Alisa Hogan's store, one of the very few minor characters seen in the pilot to appear on a sporadic basis in the regular show.
