LABOR WELCOMES MICK PALMER’S REAPPOINTMENT

 

 

The Federal Opposition has welcomed the reappointment o f Mick Palmer as the Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

 

“Mick Palmer is highly regarded both nationally and internationally, and is currently in the running for a high ranking appointment to Interpol as Secretary General,” Shadow Justice and Customs Minister, Duncan Kerr said today.

 

“Labor has been critical of the lack of resourcing to the AFP in recent budgets, but the appointment will give greater stability and security to the service. It will also ensure the senior ranks of the AFP have the wide confidence of the law enforcement community,” Mr Kerr said.
