Hear from experienced Tasmania Police forensic officer Tania Curtis APM, who was one of the police who responded to the Port Arthur Massacre on Sunday 28 April 1996. Thirty-five people were shot dead by a lone gunman on the day at Tasmania’s best known tourist spot, situated in a rural setting 90 minutes’ drive from Hobart.
Then a junior constable who had recently joined the Launceston Scientific Unit, Curtis worked at the site assisting in disaster victim identification (DVI) and evidence collecting duties.
In the interview Curtis also talks about how Tasmania Police is today positioned to respond to DVI incidents.
