AFP & International Training

How would you react when thrown in the deep end? Foreign country, different culture, different language and all you have to do is build an effective police force from scratch.

In this episode we talk with Rebecca Cameron, former Australian Federal Police officer who shares her experiences on building police force capacity in war ravaged East Timor. From basic police work and training in Australia, to a far more politically and culturally complex overseas policing with the United Nations International Police Force, this is a fascinating insight into how we can learn from and with other and build something from scratch.

We dive deeply into practical skills development in an occupation that relies on situational awareness, adaptability and problem solving skills.
