Behind the badge

There are currently more than 380,000 licensed drivers on Sunshine Coast roads. Every day, the Road Policing Unit from Nambour Police Station patrol the roads and monitor these drivers with the aim of reducing road trauma. For these men and women, dealing with dangerous driver behaviour, facing criticism and abuse, and witnessing the carnage of traffic crashes are all in a day’s work. Anna Rawlings spent time with four police officers to discover what lies behind the badge.
