Commander Bruce Porter joined the Northern Territory Police Force in July 1989. He has extensive experience in all operational facets of policing throughout urban and remote Northern Territory including Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Darwin and now in Katherine. Commander Porter spent over 7 years in the Territory Response Group, in which he became a highly qualified Police Bomb Technician. He has provided relief in a number of remote localities, the Drug Enforcement Unit, and as the Commissioner's Support Officer to name a few. Commander Porter has undertaken extensive frontline roles within the positions of Watch Commander, Territory Duty Superintendent and Divisional Superintendent. Additionally he spent 3 years within the Professional Standards Command having an intrinsic part of ensuring the integral and ethical health of the organisation.
Bruce has planned and coordinated numerous high profile operations, examples include New Year's Eve celebrations, football matches, demonstrations, the Asia Pacific Economies Co-operation (APEC) 2000 Trade Ministers Forum (involving 350 delegates) and the 2005 Arafura Games.

In early 2015 Commander Porter undertook the role of Regional Controller and was responsible for the emergency management of both Tropical Cyclone Lam and Tropical Nathan which battered the NT coast in February and March respectively, causing significant infrastructure damage and risk to the lives of community members.
Bruce was promoted to the ranks of Sergeant in 2000, Senior Sergeant in 2002 and Superintendent in 2007 prior to being promoted to Commander in 2014.
His career achievements include receiving a Commissioner's Commendation in 1996 for conspicuous duty during a shooting incident in Palmerston where four Police Officers and a civilian were shot; and receiving other letters of Appreciation and Recognition from the Deputy Commissioner and Assistant Commissioners for duties performed. Commander Porter is a recipient of the Commissioner's Outstanding Leadership Medal. Bruce was awarded the Australian Police Medal (APM) in the Australia Day Honours in January 2015.

At Rachel Scott's funeral, Bruce Porter delivered a powerful and appropriate message to all of
Bruce challenges us to "take up the torch" the Columbine victims carried and to dedicate our lives to Kingdom Purposes.
We will not remember 1999 for the parties or the politicians, but rather for Bruce Porter's challenge to the youth of
Bruce and Claudia Porter have been intimate friends with Marion and I and the ministry of Living Water Teaching for more than 15 years.
Bruce Porter ministered in our church recently, and the meeting was powerful. The content of the message was well researched, and was presented clearly and scripturally with humor and relevance. It was also a significant meeting because what he shared fit right into the flow of our church. It was as though the Holy Spirit had given him insight into the exact teaching we needed at that particular time.
Bruce has been a friend and comrade for almost thirty years, and it was a blessing to have him in the pulpit. He holds a special place in my heart because he was the minister that performed my wedding in 1978. He was also the first person to take me out on the mission field.
I heartily recommend Bruce and Claudia Porter's ministry.
I have known Bruce Porter since he joined our squadron in March of 1996, where he serves as our squadron's Moral Leadership Officer… In this age when young people are searching for discipline and guidelines, he is helping our cadets become moral young adults for whom integrity is more than just a word on a spelling test.
Recently, Bruce was named Moral Leadership Officer of the Year for the state of Colorado . It was an honor that he would never seek for himself. The outstanding job that he does in the Civil Air Patrol earned him the honor… We consider ourselves very fortunate to have him as a member of our squadron. We feel we have the best Moral Leadership Officer in the state of Colorado , if not in the nation.
I highly recommend Bruce Porter as a speaker at any school assembly or other gathering of young people.
I believe the students and staff were very attentive to Mr. Porter's words. The sight of 450 students sitting on the edge of their seats, listening to every word was wonderful. That is the most concentrated effort of listen I have ever seen for a student assembly.
I hope Mr. Porter and all others connected with these presentations luck and safety as they present their wonderful message.

Students at the Front Range Christian School are writing hand-made cards that contain scriptures and their heartfelt words - so Pastor Bruce Porter of Torchgrab Ministries can distribute them to families and children in Beslan.
Porter, who's counseled grieving families during Columbine and the school shooting two years ago in Ehrfurt, Germany - says he couldn't sit still after watching the horror unfold in Beslan.
"Inside my heart I knew - I didn't have a choice.I had to go," he says."I didn't need a telegram or Fed Ex from Heaven - it's already written in the Book - 'love people.Weep with those who weep.'"
When Porter sent out an email to his friends and supporters about his plans on Labor Day, he got an overwhelming response within six hours, pledging financial and emotional support for his journey."I want to hold the hands and hug people who feel that their world has ended.I want to hold little kids in my arms who saw their little brothers and sisters blown up.I want to meet those moms and dads at those gravesites because I know what that's about."
Porter will travel with his son and another former pastor.He'll meet with members of the Christian Broadcasting Network in Russia, who'll provide transportation and a translator.He doesn't know when he'll be back.
Porter says he doesn't have much room in his luggage - but he'll gladly accept small stuffed animals to distribute to the children.
