In January 2006, Mr Dutton was promoted to Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer and worked closely with Australia’s longest serving Treasurer Peter Costello.

Whilst in Opposition between 2008 and 2013 Mr Dutton served as Shadow Minister for Finance, Competition Policy and Deregulation and Shadow Minister for Health and Ageing.

Mr Dutton also served as a Queensland Police Officer for a decade and worked in the National Crime Authority and Drug and Sex Offenders’ Squads.


This televised national Address co-incides with the Crime Stoppers Australia National Conference 2018. This year’s conference theme – The Community’s Role in Disrupting Crime – will bring together policy makers, law enforcement agencies and community representatives who seek to explore innovative methods for encouraging the Australian community to report information about crime via Crime Stoppers. The aim is to examine how effective partnerships between relevant government agencies, law enforcement agencies and Crime Stoppers can help disrupt crime, enhance our national security and achieve a safer Australia.
