Investigation Report 01/2017: Operation Marlowe—A joint investigation into the conduct of an Australian Federal Police Protective Service Officer concerning Information Security

The investigation highlights that sensitive information held by law enforcement agencies is a vital asset for those agencies, and one capable of being compromised by anyone who has access to it. Personal conduct can expose law enforcement agency staff members to serious risk of compromise. In particular, the ‘private’ use of illicit drugs can lead to undesirable associations with criminal entities.
