Rev Gayl Mills and the AFP

Rev Gayl Mills and the AFP

To mark our centenary year, we’ve been speaking with serving and current members of the Australian Federal Police about their experiences, and how the AFP has changed over the years.

AFP Chaplain Gayl Mills joined the AFP in 2005 and has since gone on to be its longest serving chaplain. Her journey from a career in science through to priesthood has been fascinating, particularly as she didn’t grow up in a religious family and hadn’t worked with police men and women before.

Excited at the opportunity to broaden her experiences, Reverend Mills says the past13 years have been the most amazing in her life – a time that has seen her provide guidance to AFP members and strength to all after critical incidents when police officers have died in the line of duty.

We thank Gayl for sharing her incredible journey...
