ARC Linkage Grant - Linkage Partner: Victoria Police

This project aimed to establish Australia as a world leader in policing research and policing practice. Following an exhaustive review of current approaches in Victoria and internationally, and backed up by needs assessment, a series of pilot programs at selected sites allowed the development of innovative models for securing and allocating resources that support innovative policing partnerships involving government, the business sector, non-government agencies, community-based organisations and citizens. The collaboration with Victoria Police provided a model for police-university partnership across Australia, and the pilot programs that were implemented and developed are replicable widely in Australia and overseas.

The project was showcased at the Nexus Policing: Binding Research to Practice conference.
