Speaking to A Current Affair, Heidi – whose surname has been withheld – spoke of her “soul-destroying” years in the police force and how she became an escort after being introduced to the industry by a friend.

She was initially drawn to the police force because she “always wanted to help people.” However, she claims predatory behaviour by senior males at the academy deterred her from the work.

“They’re just men taking advantage of a big bunch of women who are there desperate to achieve a goal, which is to graduate,” she said.

She went on to say that death knocks, where police offers tell family members they’ve lost a loved one, was a task she found particularly distressing.

“Giving death notices is the hardest thing I have ever done. It really is, it’s just heartbreaking,” she said.

However, despite changing professions, she still has high praise for police officers.
