The Thin Blue Line – Australian Police
Fraternal greetings to our friends and colleagues in Australia. My friend and I are retired Police Officers that were based in Nottinghamshire, England. In May 2019 we started a podcast, mainly for our own amusement, to recount stories from our Police service.Much to our amazement, we find that our podcasts have become very popular with the wider public and we are now listened to in 50 countries around the globe, and are downloaded in their thousands every week. We have been surprised and humbled by the response we have had.In recent times we have started to interview policing and other emergency service… Read more »

Please see the below from Channel 7’s Sunday Night program. Please share around. —————————————— We want to find out about the culture within the AFP, the preparation and psychological support provided to officers before, during and after deployment. The message these officers are screaming out by taking their lives in their workplaces. Why isn’t this tragic practise being properly addressed by the Commissioner? What is being covered up? Why weren’t these officers provided with the mental health care they desperately needed? The AFP’s response seems to be to victim-blame. I’ve been told that admitting something is wrong hurts the reputation… Read more »
Hi Guys. Have you done a tribute yet to Murray Joseph Garden who took his life with his own gun at Dubbo in the 90’s. Jo was a family man with a wife and young kids who suffered for years with depression etc.
Yes I have:
Hi – I was searching for information on the NSW police and this was one of the finds. It is an excellent site with plenty of information. I’m an author and was wondering if from time to time I could ask a few questions about procedures and techniques in order to accurately depict crime scenes and investigations.
How to check whether a person has currently active AVO or not ?
Hi, i was wondering am i able to import a training butterfly knife? (https://www.cutss.com/collections/Butterfly2/products/gamma-doppler-emerald?sort=p.price&order=ASC) or do I need a permit?
A butterfly knife is still a butterfly knife – whether it be for training or not. Sorry.
I visited the snow fields in July 2018 and I lost my keys somehwhere in the car park at Perisher valley. I regularly called the snow fields to see if it had been found and in the final call I made they said to call Jindabyne police station. I really should have contacted you back then but didn’t think about it. SO I am contacting you now to see if by chance they were handed in and if you still have them. They are a large pack of keys and the most distinguishing feature is that they have a toyota… Read more »
Hi Gabriella, Yep, a looong time. This website is not directly affiliated with NSW Police but I can tell you that if keys had been handed in, they would have – no doubt – simply gone into a draw in the Station – amongst the hundreds of other keys. This is / was the system at many police stations and, without any identifying documentation attached to the keys, they would have simply gone into the draw. I would suggest that you either phone Jindy Police Station, via the Police Assistance Line ( 131 444 ). Ask to be transferred during… Read more »
