Paul Rosenblum is accused of trying to influence police investigations during his time with Victoria Police, including in a number of senior roles related to procurement and the awarding of police contracts to third parties.

Mr Rosenblum, who recently left the force, is also a former Yarra Ranges police inspector and represented the force as a security adviser at the Australian Security Summit in 2018.

Investigators from the state's Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) descended on Mr Rosenblum’s bayside home in June 2018, where they seized a number of items including firearms and computers as part of Operation Dawson.
