The 1980s saw Australian police forces embroiled in a bloody war against armed criminals that led to reprisal killings and an unprecedented escalation of fear and violence on both sides. From 1986 to 1996, Victoria Police shot and killed 30 people. Criminals retaliated by executing two police officers, sending shockwaves through law enforcement, legal and political circles. Trigger Point takes us deep inside police culture in search of answers to the tragic chain of events which can be set in motion when officers use firearms against the citizens they are sworn to protect.
