This activity is complete. Please sign up to our monthly Fortem Connect newsletter email list to be notified of the January In Conversation With.


Our next Conversation is with Andrew Traver, former Director of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). NCIS investigates and defeats criminal, foreign intelligence, cyber and terrorist threats to the United States Navy and Marine Corps wherever they operate: ashore, afloat and in cyberspace. Andrew’s global role had him working with many nations in addition to the US, including Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Colombia, England, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Panama, Singapore and Germany. Importantly, he implemented a peer-support program to help agents deal with trauma and mental-health issues.

Andrew now works in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the Metropolitan State University (MSU) of Denver.

Led by Brendan Nicholson from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), this conversation will be an intriguing insight to life and mental health in a law enforcement agency.
