It was an odd weekend. I spent Saturday at the Queensland Writers Centre with the author Matthew Condon, whose latest books, based on the diaries of former Police Commissioner Terry Lewis, record in forensic detail the long history of police corruption in Queensland. Then on Sunday, I went to a lecture at police headquarters, where I heard an entirely different aspect of police history – and forensics, for that matter – when the curator of the Police Museum, Lisa Jones, told the story of the Modus Operandi section within the Criminal Investigation Bureau, which operated between 1935 and 1972.
