Statement from NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller regarding Assistant Commissioner Scott Cook

I have full confidence in the professionalism of Assistant Commissioner Scott Cook, who has more than 31 years of exemplary service with the NSW Police Force, which includes receiving the Australian Police Medal in 2019.

Much of Assistant Commissioner Cook’s career has been in criminal investigation with a specialty focus on serious and organised crime.

He was promoted to the rank of Superintendent in 2010 and took the role of Asian Crime Squad Commander, before being appointed as the first Organised Crime Squad Commander in 2015.

Assistant Commissioner Cook held the role of Homicide Squad Commander from 2018, during which he exemplified the definition of a leader and reimagined the review process for unsolved cases to improve communication with the families of victims and deliver answers and justice in more cases.

In December 2019, he was promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner as the Police Prosecutions and Licensing Enforcement Commander.
