The Crime Couch with Rochelle Jackson

”That night of the Kangaroo Flat seige” - part 1

April 28, 2022

Peter Lukaitis was an experienced Victoria Police officer when he was called to a scene in Kangaroo Flat in 1999. As he walked into the siege, he had no idea of who or what he was facing. The former Sergeant and three of his colleagues were shot and seriously injured in the incident. 

Peter is a recipient of the prestigious Victoria Police Valour Award and National Bravery Medal for his courageous actions that night.

He was in the job for 39 years, working in city and country locations spending the last 18 years in Castlemaine.
