Working together to protect our future

I am excited about taking on the role of communications officer for the NTPA.

The NT police are facing important challenges currently and I think it is important that the industrial rights and welfare of members is protected.

I want to use the skills I have gained in a 20-year career as a journalist and communicator to help the NTPA work for the benefit of members and highlight that work.

The work the NT Police members do around the Territorys towns and remote areas is incredibly important. I have developed a respect and admiration for the work of police
during a journalism career that has involved working around the nation and internationally. That includes time as a police and emergency services reporter for
Australian Associated Press in Melbourne, often writing about Police Association issues there. I was until recently the Northern Territory correspondent for AAP from 2018.

I also love the NT and its unique and diverse characteristics and natural beauty.
