Up until the 1980s, Queensland's police force was something else, led by crooked cops who thrived on bribery and extortion. It was a murky world of gambling, drugs and illegal brothels that started to come crashing down when a small group of sex workers put their lives on the line to expose the racket. Now, one of them has spoken out for the first time on the latest series of the ABC's Dig podcast, 'Sirens Are Coming'. Today, its host Matt Condon on an extraordinary period in Queensland, and what it means for the state now as its anti-corruption watchdog faces fresh questions over its integrity.
