AFP content for newsrooms from December 1

The AFP’s media advent calendar, which reveals the outcomes of operations and taskforces in 2022, plus outlines important education messages for the public, starts tomorrow (Thursday, 1 December).

Every day, the AFP will publish a media release that highlights how the AFP has kept Australians safe in 2022 by disrupting crime onshore and offshore.

The media releases cover the AFP’s crime priorities, including cybercrime and fraud; child protection; transnational serious organised crime; and terrorism. There will also be a focus on human trafficking, forensics and international partnerships.

The countdown to a safe festive season will culminate on Christmas Eve with a holiday message from AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and members.

Some of the media releases will contain a hightail link for grabs for radio and images for print.
