Fair Cop Nixon With Chandler
Christine Nixon: Fair Cop reveals the remarkable rise through police ranks of Australia's first female Chief Commissioner. Christine Nixon has been a police officer for more than thirty years. After cutting her teeth in the New South Wales Police Force, where she attained the rank of Assistant Commissioner, Nixon was appointed Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police in April 2001. Her eight-year tenure has been characterised by her tough anti-corruption stance, her frequently acrimonious relationship with the Police Association and her high approval ratings with the Victorian public. In this frank and engaging memoir, Christine Nixon opens up about the pressures of life in the public eye and working in one of the toughest jobs in the country. She also explains her early resignation as Chief Commissioner, to tackle an equally formidable role as head of Victoria's bushfire taskforce.
