Fiji Police: Farewells Senior Officer Of AFP

The Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho and senior members of the Fiji Police Force bid farewell to the outgoing Australian Federal Police’s Fiji and Pacific Liaison Officer Superintendent of Police Brett Kidner.

SP Kidner’s three-year term came to an end this past week and over the years he has been the key liaison officer between the Fiji Police and the AFP.

The two institutions have had numerous successful joint operations in tackling transnational crimes and disrupting the illicit drug trade which not only had the ability to negatively impact both countries, but the Pacific region.

SP Kidner had been working closely with the Transnational Crime Unit, CID and Intelligence Unit throughout his three-year term and had also worked closely with Fiji Police officials in bringing training opportunities to Fiji for Pacific Island law enforcement agencies.

Brigadier General Qiliho said working with SP Kidner has been a great experience and he is sure to be missed.

“The Fiji Police has a great working relationship with the AFP and SP Kidner has come to not only be a comrade but a close member of the Fiji Police Force family and we wish him well, but we also don’t want this to be a goodbye as we are sure to meet again during the course of our duties”.

The Commissioner and the senior hierarchy also had the opportunity to meet the incoming AFP Liaison Officer, Detective Superintendent Glen Fisher who
previously held the post of Coordinator Crime Operations (Queensland).

D/SP Fisher has undertaken roles in investigations, intelligence, training, international liaison and capacity building and had started in the AFP’s Sydney
Office in the fields of illicit narcotics, money laundering and fraud investigations.

In 2002, he established the AFP’s Counter Terrorism Intelligence and was appointed to head up a newly formed Online Child Exploitation Team in 2004.

In 2013, he took up a position managing the AFP’s operational interests in Northern Queensland overseeing investigations against serious and organized crime threats to northern Australia and community policing regional airports.

In 2016 he moved to Brisbane to manage the AFP’s criminal response and victim-based crime investigations for Queensland, which includes the responsibility for managing the Joint Anti-Child Exploitation Team located with the Queensland Police Task Force Argo.

D/SP Fisher has a Bachelor of Arts, (Justice Studies), Graduate Certificate Professional Development Education, Graduate Certificate in Applied
Management, Masters of Political Science and Masters of Business Administration.

D/SP Fisher’s term is for three years.
