This website is dedicated to all the honest police and brave members of the public who are prepared to speak about police corruption and mismanagement.

We hope to provide you with information about current issues and publications concerning police culture and provide links to other sites that may be of interest.

Deborah blew the whistle on major corruption within the ranks of the NSW Police Force during the 1990’s. Her perseverance in going public with her allegations of widespread corruption ultimately helped bring about the establishment of the Wood Royal Commission which lead to wide ranging reforms to the brotherhood.

Deborah is a member of Whistleblowers Australia and has previously been a representative on the NSW Police Internal Witness Advisory Council. Deb is also available for guest speaker engagements.

As we continue to hear reports in the media about crooked detectives in police forces throughout the country, both state and federally, we need to support the honest cops in their efforts to weed out the corrupt ones. Unfortunately this responsibility is almost exclusively left to relatively junior officers.

Whistleblowers Australia is prepared to support and provide valuable advice to any police or members of the public before,during and after they report criminal police activity.

Even today after the success of the Fitzgerald & Wood Royal Commissions Police whistleblowers continue to be harassed, victimized and branded by the guilty as mentally defective. Honest cops still fall victim to payback allegations that are nearly always more strenuously investigated by IA Branches than the original complaint.

 

Griffith University and the University of Melbourne are running an international survey about attitudes to whistleblowing. The survey is anonymous and anyone can take part, not just whistleblowers. We invite you to participate in the World Online Whistleblowing Survey. Click here to access the survey page.
