Why does Australian Federal police tech recruitment drive smell more like a phishing expedition than a recruitment drive. Develop all the skills they want in private and you pretty much have put a flashing target on your back, come and get me, come and get me, come and get me.
They need to wake up to themselves and hand the technical forensics over to ACMA http://www.acma.gov.au/, and the Asutralian Federal Police can just be field officers. ACMA is going to be whole lot better at recruiting and also far better at security research and analysis. They might have to legalise MJ in the ACT if they way to facilitate willingness moves from coastal cities to Canberra or locate the forensics, investigation and research facility in a more desirable city.
Bringing in experts from overseas would be profoundly stupid, as they pretty much would be guaranteed to get a whole bunch of foreign agents seeking to punch permanent backdoors in Australia computer and communications security, maybe they could also run that as another phishing expedition.
