Summary Note AUTOBIOGRAPHY: GENERAL. AUSTRALIAN. Colin Dillon is an extraordinary man. He was the first Indigenous policeman in Australia. But that is actually a very small part of his story...Colin was the first serving police officer to voluntarily appear before the Fitzgerald Commission of Inquiry in 1987 and give first-hand evidence of police corruption. He did this at a time when the Fitzgerald Inquiry was beginning and struggling for traction. His evidence at the Inquiry was instrumental in eventually sending some police, including Police Commissioner Terry Lewis, and politicians to prison...He shares his observations, detailed accounts and personal experiences over many years. These include attempts to bribe him by fellow police officers caught up in the web of corruption during these decades of greed within the Queensland Police Force.
