It's seldom that counterfeiters end up killing police. Sadly this occurred in 1902 when a 'Coiner' (old Australian slang) murdered two police officers - one in NSW and one in Victoria. In the first case the coiner had an accomplice. Danny Webster and Noel Johnson's article 'The Coiner Killers' is a remembrance piece in the September 2023 edition of the APJ. Danny joins host Jason Byrnes, to talk about the strange and tragic tale.
APJ Editor Simon Bouda also appears to talk about the wide range of interesting articles in the latest edition - including the so-called Collar Bomber case of 2011, developments in a new intelligence sharing system administered by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, Cold Case Homicide investigations in Western Australia, and an update on the Museum of Australian Policing.
National Police Remembrance Day (NPRD) is 29 September - ceremonies will be held on the day around Australia, all are invited to attend.
