Summary
First it was Queensland and New South Wales, then Western Australia. Now, after years in denial, Victorian police are the latest to be engulfed in a scandal of entrenched and brutal corruption.For decades, revelations of police corruption and links to organised crime leapfrogged from state to state. Public outrage forced governments to set up judicial inquiries, royal commissions and watchdog bodies to root out rotten cops. One early and powerful weapon was the National Crime Authority, which last year became the Australian Crime Commission. For 20 years this top crime-fighting agency has stayed clear of corruption allegations.But now, as Four Corners reports, the Australian Crime Commission is also wearing the stain of corruption.This special report by Chris Masters reveals how the ACC has been contaminated by corrupt detectives from state police services. Using secret surveillance audio tapes and footage, Masters shows how two ACC officers drawn from the Victoria and NSW police joined forces with underworld figures and another NSW detective to shake down drug dealers.The game plan was simple and effective - and repeated time and time again. The policemen's criminal associates set up a drug deal. The police ambushed the dealer in a bogus arrest, stripped him of cash and drugs then sent him on his way. The cash and the proceeds from re-selling the drugs were then split between the police and their accomplices. One of the ACC officers was so highly trusted that he was sent on a crucial mission to Cambodia to penetrate a heroin and amphetamines supply network. Some significant drug busts resulted. But now there are concerns about what else the officer might have done as his mission blew out to eight months, much of it in the company of his criminal informant from Australia, and members of the notoriously corrupt Cambodian police. Finally, the corruption of the ACC officers and their cronies was uncovered... though not by the ACC. Ironically, the significant breaks came from anti-corruption units within the NSW and Victoria police. Chris Masters lays out the story of this corrupt circle and, via interviews with seasoned ex-detectives and an underworld figure who has dealt with straight and bent police for 30 years, examines what goes wrong when police get too close to criminal informants. His report raises the key question: why is there no independent federal body to monitor the ACC for corruption? Or, as one former detective put it: "Who's watching the ones that do the watching?"
