AFP overseas boost to stop crime reaching Australia
MORE Australian Federal Police would be stationed offshore at key hot spots to tackle terror, cyber crime and drugs at its source, under enforcement plans being developed by government strategists.
Multiple senior police and federal government sources told The Daily Telegraph there is a push for the AFP to hit transnational crime at the source and tackle the flow of drugs, criminal cartels and terror networks upstream before it reaches Australia.
As the Home Affairs department is developed, questions are being asked about what Australian policing and intelligence agencies need to do strategically to get ahead.
Discussions have included examining the AFP's resources to make sure they hit the cartels offshore, before dangerous drugs reach our shores, while targeting terror networks overseas and other trans-national syndicates.
