Kenny’s second language – Bilingual skills save hours in investigations
Kenny was a chartered accountant who needed a new challenge. He tried his hand at state policing in Victoria, which he found to be rewarding work. So he took his career a step further by joining our Lateral Program – a pathway for current or recently serving state or territory police officers.
Now as a respected Senior Constable in the Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce (CACT), Kenny’s job is to find and analyse information that helps remove the profit from crime and prevent its reinvestment in further criminal enterprise.
There are often scenarios where someone’s cultural experiences or second language can enhance the analysis of information. This could be someone’s keen interest in a football code, a sound understanding of the way different cultures communicate, or simply reading messages in a different language.
“The AFP loves different cultures and experiences. It helps build a successful investigative capability when you have a wide range of experiences and worldly people working together.
