Updated: Jun 17

The Fixation Persons Investigation Unit (FPIU) is a division of the New South Wales Police Force first established in 2017. It is comprised of both police officers and mental health specialists who are tasked with identifying "potentially vulnerable people who may be at risk of exposure to extremist material."
