West Australian Police
Australians Against Corruption (AAC) have an enormous dossier
of Police corruption in Western Australia that is all out of proportion
to the relatively small size of that state's Police force. This indicates
that corruption there is out of control. On 14th October 1997, a Federal
Parliamentary (Senate) Inquiry was given substantial evidence at a Melbourne
hearing, stating that Bob Falconer the current WA Police commissioner was
involved in serious corruption in Victoria in the early 1990's, when head
of that state's Police Internal Investigations section, either in a role
of facilitating or covering up illegal Police activity.
Time constraints prevent AAC from placing much of this material on the
World Wide web, but we expect it to become the focus of books in the future.
Avon Lovell has written a number of books about corruption in Western Australia,
most notably The Mickelberg Stitch and Split Image.
The WA Police force have attempted to ban both books and served a number
of vexatious defamation writs on the author. Notably the author of that
book, Avon Lovell, wrote a foreward for Raymond Hoser's book, The
Hoser Files, which was about Police corruption in Victoria.
That book was unlawfully banned by Police in Victoria, following unprecedented
pressure on media and the book distributors. In spite of that ban, the
first print run has sold out and the book has been reprinted to satisfy
The following letter (below) is typical of many received by AAC in Melbourne
from victims of Police corruption. The case involving XXXXXX (see below)
has had some media publicity in WA, which in itself is rare as usually
mainstream media tend to shy away from exposing official corruption.

Dear Mr Hoser,
Let me start by telling you, that on the XXXXX 1997, I recorded a
telephone conversation between two drug squad Officers talking about sharing
around money that they had found at a suspects home. I approached the Anti
Corruption Commission with the tape. The A.C.C launched a huge investigation
into Police Corruption.
Since then, my house has been raided six times by the Organised Crime
Squad. Nothing illegal has ever been found. I am being harassed by the
police every time I walk out the door.
I was advised by an anonymous caller (who called himself Colin) to get
into contact with you regarding The Hoser Files.
I was told to send Twenty Five Dollars to obtain a copy. I was briefly
told what they were about, but not in great detail. If you are able to
send me a copy of The Hoser Files,
could you please highlight or write a quick description outlining the relevant
I have enclosed copies of relevant newspaper articles regarding the
tape. You can contact me anytime on the following numbers:-
