Policing in the 21st century

ARC Linkage Grant - Linkage Partner: Australian Federal Police

This project designed and evaluated an innovative policing strategy for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The project team, including members of the Australian Federal Police, conducted an exhaustive inventory of mechanisms for informing and consulting the public, and for empowering communities in the co-production of public safety. A framework was developed to use the mechanisms best suited to the ACT, and to integrate these with existing strategies of restorative justice and intelligence-driven policing. The project also evaluated the impact of the new policing strategies on citizen satisfaction with police performance, perceptions of public safety, and measures of crime.
