Australian Federal Police assistant commissioner Kevin Zuccato quietly finished up at the AFP last Friday. Zuccato was national manager, support capability, with a distinguished career in drugs enforcement and cybercrime, including a five-year stint as director of the Australian High Tech Crime Centre. At age 49, he seems a little young to be retiring, but that was the word AFP Media used to describe his departure.

I subscribe to Crikey because I believe in a free, open and independent media where news and opinions can be published that I can both agree with and be challenged by.

As a Crikey subscriber I always feel more informed and able to think more critically about issues and current affairs – even when they don’t always reflect my own political viewpoint or lived experience.
