Barnett was the local police officer for Summer Bay. A portly man aged about 45, 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.
Barnett was still living in the area in 1990. What became of him after is unknown.
As of 2017, Barnett will have retired from the police force years ago. He will be 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 so does count as an original character, one of the very few minor characters seen in the pilot to appear on a sporadic basis in the regular show.
