AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Police State is the story of the development of corruption in the Queensland police force and body politic as revealed during the Royal Commission conducted by Tony Fitzgerald, QC in 1987/88. Police State opens with the dramatic early days of the Commission hearings and the evidence of Assistant Commissioner Graeme Parker. Parker was the first senior officer to admit his corruption and seek an indemnity from prosecution. His evidence exposed the testimony of earlier witnesses and implicated those at "the top and higher".'
