Brett Lee

ISE (Internet Safe Education) creator, Brett Lee, worked as a Queensland Police Officer for 22 years, 16 of those as a Detective predominantly in the field of Child Exploitation. In his last five years of service, he was a specialist in the field of undercover internet child exploitation investigations. 

Brett has been personally involved in the online investigation, arrest and prosecution of numerous offenders, whose medium for preying on children is the internet. Brett has delivered training to members of law enforcement agencies including New South Wales Police, South Australian Police, West Australian Police and Australian Customs. Within his own police service he was involved in the training of plain clothes police through Detective Training and Sexual Crimes courses in Online Child Exploitation investigations.

Further to Brett’s experience, he has completed the FBI Advanced Internet Investigations Course and has worked with the FBI Innocent Images Unit, Maryland USA, the Department of Homeland Security Cyber Crimes Centre, Virginia USA and the San Jose Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, California USA.  He has also attended and spoken at conferences around Australia and the world.

Brett has received the Queensland Police Commissioner’s Gold Award and the Crime and Misconduct Commissioner’s Award for his role in the development and implementation of software that is now utilized by various Australian Law enforcement agencies to track and identify online child offenders.

In 2001, in his role as a Detective, Brett delivered an internet safety presentation to students. It was then that he realised the key to protecting the most vulnerable people in our society, our children, from online dangers was education. This realisation fueled a passion that led to the creation of ISE which in 2009 reached over 100,000 students, teachers and parents with a message of awareness and responsibilities. As a furtherance to Brett’s diverse background he was contracted in Iraq on a US/Iraq project as a Police Instructor training Iraqi nationals at the Iraq National Police Academy located outside the township of An Numinayah,  Brett often incorporates stories of his experience there into his presentations.
