Narelle Fraser was in the Victorian Police Force for 27 years, 15 of which were spent as a detective dealing with everything from a stolen bicycle to a stolen life.

We revisit the episode - Dani Laidley and deceased people at crime scenes
This exclusive Patreon episode, Narelle talks about a former Victoria Police member who shared images of people at their most vulnerable - namely Dani Laidley and deceased people at crime scenes. These saved and shared images created unimaginable grief and distress. But Narelle tells us some further information which may, in some small way, explain to some degree, his appalling behaviour.

We revisit Keith Banks
Going underground as a cop sounds like an exciting proposition for a young recruit still learning the ropes, and for Keith Banks that’s exactly what it was. He would soon be immersed in the seedy side of criminal life, where he would assume the identity of a drug dealer with the aim of bringing down the cartels flooding the streets with narcotics. But the job would come at the cost of Keith’s mental wellbeing. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

We revisit Peter Bellion
Peter Bellion held an unenviable position at Victoria Police – he was an Accident Reconstruction Expert. Long after the ambulances had left the scene, it was Peter’s job to painstakingly piece together the events that led to the accident. Over a 30 year long career, Peter would attend over 2000 fatal traffic accidents and eventually the horrific sights he faced on a near daily basis took a toll until he was eventually diagnosed with PTSD. Peter still battles with these demons to this day. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
