Class #167 - Cst. Steve Austin
Show Notes

The True Blue Podcast introduces you to one more of the 7 new recruits from Class #167 being trained at the Police Academy in New Westminster in the Spring of 2022.   Cst. Steve Austin was born in Melbourne, Australia but grew up in Nanaimo; he is a dual citizen of Canada and Australia.  He has great experiences travelling the world before  becoming a police officer.   Steve set out for Nepal right after high school to teach first aid and he made it to Everest Base Camp but describes that experience as not enjoyable.   He came back to Canada to get married before going to China with his new wife to teach English; after that they decided to spend time in Brisbane, Australia where Steve completed his Criminal Justice program.  That landed Steve a job with the Queensland Police as an intel analyst working in the Child Abuse & Sex Crimes Unit.  Steve also serves in the Australian Army Reserve and currently keeps active with the Army at the 5th Field Artillery Regiment.   Steve will be away from his wife and 2 very young children while at the Police Academy but he looks forward to the experience.
