Suicide Bombings and the Australian Federal Police
We've mentioned the Australian Federal Police (AFP) many times on Australian True Crime, but do any of us really know what they do?
Our guest today, David Savage AM, who reached the very top of the tree in that organisation, may change the way you think about the role of the AFP.
For one thing, his brilliant career was brought to a grinding halt when he was supposed to be protected by a bunch of Americans on a dusty road in Afghanistan.
David is now the President of the Australian Federal Police Former Members Association, and he's particularly passionate about securing better mental health support, both for serving and retired members.
