    Operation Collage

    Operation Collage

    When intel was received that a boat with nearly half a tonne of cocaine was headed toward Australian waters, the AFP, Customs, and state police monitored the journey and the transference of drugs to a smaller vessel. What followed was a perilous five-day boat chase through the high seas.

    Operation Birks

    Operation Birks

    An urgent cybersecurity fraud case landed on the desk of AFP investigators; a syndicate was stealing money from Australian superannuation and share trading accounts. In a race against time to stop millions of dollars in theft, the team had to unravel a complex web of false accounts to find how the syndicate was exploiting vulnerabilities in the system. Burner phones and a kebab order led them to a surprisingly young culprit.

    Operation Boscobel

    Operation Boscobel

    When the AFP joined a multi-agency taskforce to investigate security and vulnerabilities on the waterfront, they had no idea they would discover a huge national fraud involving tens of millions of dollars. From off-the-book payments to clandestine collections of money in white envelopes, Operation Boscobel investigators were there to document it all. A dedicated team put together literally a truck-load of evidence. In the wake of this, the six main players didn’t stand a chance in court.

    Operation Blare

    Operation Blare

    When the AFP got intel on a case of foreign bribery, it wasn’t historic as they usually were; it was happening right then. Operation Blare was formed to stop it and send a message to Australian businesses – pay bribes at your own risk.

    Operation Caulis

    When the Australian Education Department noticed huge fortnightly claims for childcare under their fully-subsidised grandparent scheme, they suspected fraud and called in the AFP. The scheme they uncovered was beyond belief.

P.TwoBears ,

Are you finished, should I unsubscribe?

You should at least post a short podcast letting us know if we should wait for new episodes or if this was a limited edition series. It feels rude. I really enjoyed the episodes I listened to

All 6 done — Podcast Over???

What a wonderful & fascinating — 6 episodes of the Podcast is this set of episodes from April to October of 2023!
[The next question/comment seems like it ought be this podcast: done & OVER??
Or: is it: done &…on hold? Or OVER… ’TILL WHAT/WHEN?
You MAY THINK OF THESE AS PRIVATE PRODUCTION CONCERNS; but it was unclear after the stoppage of the original set of episodes that were also very good but seemed to just end without explanation
This is why I give you 4 stars rather than 5. For another Podcast Family without the high quality background & high quality individual episodes as this, the lack of unclear future plans might’ve lead to a 3-star rating, but the episodes are just too good!
So, please @ least put out a message like spoken word & the length - no longer than a trailer is necessary to explain what’s happening now. Maybe then I could re-rate the podcast with a 5-star review which would have been much more appropriate if there was an idea about where this was going or NOT going.
