I lost my job because of the boys club

20 years of policing, winning some of the most prestigious awards going and yet the buys club did everything they could to destroy my career.
My best survival skill was to leave, knowing that if I didn’t I would kill myself.
I was accused of many things, and was so busy banging every male officer that it was a wonder I had time to do an arrest.
I haven’t listened yet, but will now that I have found you.
Brigid, we may have even crossed paths.

Compelling story by an excellent interviewer

I could not stop listening to this until I was finished. Brigit is credible and an important voice. Learned so much from this podcast.

Thank you

Best wishes Bridget and Sarah. A shocking journey and told in such a heartfelt manner. NSW Police (men) should hold their heads in shame. The most horrific workplace and the community is supposed to trust these Neanderthal’s? I hope that the corrupt, sexist, brutal ones have been able to turn their lives around. Well done on an amazing series and hope you both get the Tv series you deserve.
