Deputy Chief Police Officer

Assistant Commissioner Peter Crozier has been a member of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) since 1987 and has performed operational duties across the AFP’s community policing, national and international responsibilities, including attachments to the United Nations, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and Sport Integrity Australia (SIA).

The community policing roles Peter performed as a Constable and a Sergeant had a profound impact on his career and led to the operational and leadership opportunities nationally and internationally across the AFP and partner law enforcement agencies. 

Peter was promoted to Superintendent in 2006 and in 2007 was seconded to the MPS SO15 Counter Terrorism Command in the United Kingdom. In 2008 Peter was deployed to Singapore as the AFP Senior Liaison Officer and in 2011 he returned to Australia in the position of the Detective Superintendent leading the AFP’s Joint Counter Terrorism Team (JCTT) in Sydney.

Peter was promoted Commander in 2013 as the Commander Counter Terrorism Operations. In this position Peter led the AFP’s domestic and international counter-terrorism investigations in collaboration with the AFP’s national and international law enforcement and security partners. In 2015 Peter commenced as the Commander Criminal Assets, Fraud and Anti-Corruption leading the AFP’s commitment to a number of multi-agency taskforces addressing serious financial crime, criminal assets investigations and corporate corruption matters. 

Peter was promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner in 2018 and has performed roles as the AFP’s Assistant Commissioner People, Safety & Security and Assistant Commissioner Crime Command. In June 2020 Peter was seconded to SIA contributing to the establishment of the agency.

Peter returned to the AFP in July 2021 as the Deputy Chief Police Officer (DCPO) for ACT Policing. In this role Peter leads ACT Policing’s Operations and Investigations Commands and the Corporate Communications and Ministerial Teams. Peter also continues to lead the AFP’s teams undertaking the investigation of the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH-17 over Ukraine in July 2014.

Peter is married and has two daughters. He enjoys golf, gardening, failing at DIY projects. He keeps a close eye on Australia’s cricket and rugby teams together with experiencing the frustrations only a fellow follower of the Canberra Raiders and Collingwood Magpies can appreciate.
