Ep. Keith Banks Undercover and Tactical Response Qld Police Officer in 80's and 90's

On today's Zero Limits podcast we chat to former Queensland Police Officer Keith Banks. Keith joined as an idealistic seventeen year old and emerged with a career of twenty years in deep undercover work, criminal investigation, special weapons, counter-terrorism and criminal intelligence. Keith Banks is one of Queensland's most decorated police officers, a recipient of the Bravery Medal and twice being awarded the prestigious Queensland Police Valour Medal, among other honours. He was a member of the Queensland Police Force for two decades (1975-95), going undercover during the premiership of Joh Bjelke-Petersen and Terry Lewis' time as police commissioner: the most notoriously corrupt period in Queensland’s history. He is now married with two children and remains a martial arts enthusiast.

He is passionate about supporting first responders dealing with PTSD, which stems from his personal experience with the condition. With his books, he strives to encourage a more open and authentic conversation around mental health and the reality of police work. Let's Go!
