G’day mates! Today we are going to the land down under to speak with Oliver Laurence, who was a police sergeant in Australia! 

Oliver Laurence worked for the South Australian Police and the Queensland Police Service as a constable, senior constable, and was promoted to the rank of sergeant. 

During his career in law enforcement in Australia, he worked in a variety of positions and locations from the Gold Coast to the Outback. 

Upon retirement, he started his own security agency spanning from Asia to the UK. He is also the host of the popular Protect and Serve Podcast.                    

In today’s episode we discuss:

·      How Oliver got his start in law enforcement.

·      Where his interest in law enforcement came from. 

·      Police training and equipment in Australia.

·      Policing in the Outback and dealing with indigenous people who live there?

·      The types of crimes he investigated in the Outback.

·      Public order policing in Australia’s Gold Coast. 

·      Starting a private investigation company and some of the cases he has worked on.

·      His podcast, Protect and Serve!

 All of this and more on today’s episode of the Cops and Writers podcast.
