In the secret world of Covert Operations, Undercover Operatives' lives depend on their ability to both, tell lies and detect lies. As an expert in covert operations, Dr. David Craig has been teaching and researching these techniques in Australia and overseas for many years. He completed a professional law doctorate (covert operations) in 2000 and has published several articles in Australia and overseas on the subject of undercover operations.
David has conducted international research into, and assessed undercover & covert infiltration programs in Australia, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
Dr David Craig undertook a thesis on international comparative analysis of the law and practice of Federal undercover programs in the Australia, the United States (DEA, FBI, US Customs and IRS), Canada (RCMP), the UK (England, Wales and Scotland - UK Customs, National and Scottish Crime Squads & Scotland Yard) and the Netherlands (Polite). He visited all these countries when undertaking his research and interviewed a range of personnel from legal officers to undercover practitioners and those that supervise undercover officers.
His thesis was assessed and accepted unanimously by three independent high level assessors (2 Law Faculty Deans and 1 x Dean of Criminology). He was awarded the SJD in 2001, and has since published several academic articles in Australia and overseas on subject of undercover operations. Dr David Craig studied at the Law Faculty, Bond University, Australia.
