Cameron Tait was a character in The Bill in 2003 and 2004.
PC Cameron Tait was a very popular member of the relief. Transferring from Sydney he joined Sun Hill in 2003 after a few years in the force. In early 2003 he went undercover with shoplifters. In early 2004, while he was babysitting Sheelagh Murphy and Des Taviner's daughter Naimh, the child stopped breathing and subsequently died. Cameron went on a bender and got assaulted. After this he started a relationship with PC Kerry Young but this was frayed when PC Gabriel Kent convinced her that a one night stand with Sergeant Dale Smith was date rape. This came to a head during an armed robbery when Kerry was chaperoning the manager, who had a bomb tied to his waist. Kerry got distracted arguing with Cameron, during which the bomb exploded. After Kerry withdrew the allegation against Smithy, Cameron temporarily ended the relationship, but Kerry convinced him to restart it. However, it was frayed once again when Gabriel raped Kerry (for real this time) and Cameron was unconvinced as Kerry wouldn't pursue the allegation, due to the fact that Gabriel had CCTV of the bomb incident. However, when Kerry was going to go ahead, Gabriel wound Cameron up and told him that he raped Kerry in a way that it wasn't obvious, to which Cameron retaliated by beating up Gabriel in the station canteen; they had to be separated by an angry Gina Gold. Gold asked Cameron what the fight was about, but Cameron said it would cost him his job, so he left London to return to Sydney.
