One woman's journey through Sydney's criminal underworld, from rookie cop to police whistleblower.

She just wanted to be a great cop and do her job well - that's all she'd ever dreamed of. Little did she know the good guys would turn out to be every bit as menacing as the bad ... In 1984, with grand plans to escape her deadbeat family, Deborah Locke graduated as a constable in the NSW Police Force. Young, blonde and pretty, she looked forward to her life as a copper. But within a year she was already being drawn into the dark circle of police corruption in Sydney's underworld. Bribery, substance abuse and sexual harassment were commonplace - the lines between cops and crims were blurred. Having worked her way up to the rank of detective senior constable, Locke entered dangerous territory when she decided to blow the whistle on her crooked colleagues ... WAtCHING tHE DEtECtIVES is the story of a gutsy young woman who stayed true to what she believed in - no matter the cost.
