Bryan Harding is a former Victoria Police Chief Superintendent with a remarkable career. Bryan was a reformist and years ahead of his time. He opposed capital punishment, tried to keep young offenders out of prison and looked for social rather than legal solutions to resolve conflict.
At 91 years of age. Bryan's about to publish his autobiography; "Always in need of reform - reflections of a policeman". He talks on The Crime Couch about his rapport with notorious crook Ronald Ryan, the Faraday School kidnapping and heading up the Police Association.
