ACT police chief suddenly resigns

ACT police chief Justine Saunders resigns.

AFTER less than two years ACT chief police officer Justine Saunders has suddenly resigned.

Since taking on the role as chief police officer for the ACT in November 2016, Minister for Police and Emergency Services Mick Gentleman says he has found her expertise and advice over this time invaluable.

“Her work with ACT Policing is to be commended,” he says.

“She has invested significant resources in engaging with the local community about policing matters. She has begun the important process of reforming the future of ACT Policing. She has also delivered strong results in combatting the criminal activities of outlaw motor cycle gangs through Taskforce Nemesis.”

Ms Saunders spent more than 29 years working in community policing and national operational areas within the AFP, including drug importation and fraud.

“I am proud to have worked with Justine and I thank her for her commitment to ensuring Canberra remains one of the safest places in the world to live,” Mr Gentleman says. 

Ms Saunders will take on a new position with the Australian Government.

Mr Gentleman says he looks forward to the appointment of a successor.
