The Amazing Race Australia - Lauren Howells and Steph McGrath

We all know the importance of teamwork in the WA Police Force, and two of our officers will showcase its value on primetime TV in the coming weeks.

Det. 1/C Steph McGrath and 1/C Lauren Howells recently put their partnership to the ultimate test as contestants on Channel 10’s The Amazing Race, as it ventured back to international travel.

Appropriately dressed as the blue team, they competed against 19 other couples in a literal race around the world, surviving on their wits and skills in engaging with people from all walks of life.

They offered these insights:

"I’ve been a huge fan of the show for years and the idea of getting to compete and complete these challenges is so exciting. I can’t wait to be placed into challenging situations and experience the complete unknown.”

“I think as police officers we have a broad, diverse skill set that is unique and applicable to The Race. We can communicate extremely well with members of the public, our race mates and each other.”

1/C McGrath

The Amazing Race begins at 7.30pm next Monday on Channel 10.
