You're on Debian, not? Then you probably already have it installed.
It's in /etc/bash_completion and here's the relevant part of the
readme:

  To enable programmable completion for bash on Debian, uncomment the
  bash_completion lines in /etc/bash.bashrc to source
  /etc/bash_completion.  /etc/bash_completion sources
  ~/.bash_completion, if it exists.

Happy completing,
