Former Northern Territory police officer Zachary Rolfe has recently made shocking revelations during an inquest in Alice Springs. He admitted to the normalization of racist language within the police force and apologized for his own use of such language. Rolfe alleged that he was gradually introduced to racist talk while serving in the force. He also claimed that an elite squad of NT police awarded a mock racist prize annually to the member who “behaved most like an Aboriginal”. Despite these revelations, Rolfe denied any belief that Aboriginal people were treated differently by the force. It’s worth noting that Rolfe was found not guilty of the murder of Kumanjayi Walker in 2019.
