*Synopsis | Breaking Cover (2023)*
Being a police officer can often be dangerous, but within the Australian Federal Police there’s a special division of cops whose role is so constantly treacherous that every day is a matter of life and death. They’re undercover operatives who work at the very front line of crime-fighting in Australia and internationally.

The protection of these officers should be a priority, but remarkably, when the AFP conducted a high-level inquiry into its own undercover program, it found major failings that risked compromising operations and lives. In a major investigation by 60 MINUTES, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Nick McKenzie reports that police insiders are now so worried about the safety of their brave colleagues they’re breaking cover in the hope of achieving long-term accountability and reform.
