To live off country means a physical disconnect from an area which your family and culture possess a long, proud heritage - 65,000 years in some cases.
As a proud Worimi woman, Alannah knew living and working off country would be a daunting life change. She was always passionate about the justice system; she has a Bachelor of Criminal Justice and took her first job in corrections, which is where she started to see firsthand the importance of policing.
Our Directions Program presented Alannah the perfect opportunity to join the AFP and gain experience in many different areas.
