  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - Sustainability: A briefing paper
    • Abstract: Jones, Peter; Hillier, David; Comfort, Daphne
      The aims of this briefing paper are to examine the origins and development of the concept of sustainability, to outline some of the current approaches to sustainability reporting and to offer some reflections on both sustainability and sustainability reporting. The paper draws attention to the contrasting and contested meanings of sustainability, to the theoretical frameworks developed to conceptualise sustainability and to the growing interest in sustainability reporting. In their discussion the authors explore some of the challenges police authorities may face in looking to develop and formalise their approach to sustainability as an integral part of their continuing commitment to protect and enhance the communities and environments in which they work.

  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - The Russell Street Bombing 30 years on
    • Abstract: Roberts, Brendan
      At 1.01 pm on March 27, 1986, the heart of policing in Victoria was pierced, when a stolen car full of explosives was detonated outside the Entrance to Melbourne's Russell Street police headquarters. The blast claimed the life of 21-year-old Constable Angela Taylor and injured dozens more. On the 30th anniversary of the Russell Street bombing, those trapped in the path of the explosion, those who witnessed the tragic aftermath and those who brought the bombers to justice, recall the day that changed their lives and policing in Victoria forever. This story originally appeared in The Police Association Journal in Victoria.

  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - Critical incidents and potential impact upon race hate
           crime reporting
    • Abstract: Cuerden, Gareth; Rogers, Colin
      In recent times, many countries have suffered terrorist and other terror attacks, and have also suffered from the economic downturn due to austerity etc. In many instances, countries have seen a retreat to so called 'core values' and a swing towards a more right wing type of political consensus appears evident. The recent decision by the electorate in the United Kingdom referendum to leave the European Union for example, has impacted upon the social and political thought in the country. Economically, ties with Europe will of course hopefully remain, as well as other aspects of the former union, particularly when it comes to policing for local, national and international arrangements. During the so called Brexit debates, however, there were claims and counterclaims regarding the topic of immigration. This political issue appears to have been a major contributing factor in the decision to leave the EU, but it may also have encouraged some individuals to engage in open hostility towards immigrants across the country. For example, incidents have been reported in the media of racial abuse being hurled at minority ethnic individuals in places such as Manchester, Basingstoke, and Cardiff amongst many other places, as well as online race hate abuse towards individuals. Given that most countries have diverse populations which include minority ethnic communities and individuals, the question arises as to whether or not crimes and other incidents of a race hate nature are more prevalent during these types of incidents.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Crime and tourism: The police response
    • Abstract: Mawby, RI
      Tourism has long been recognised as a crime generator, with resorts honeypots for offenders. Much of the early research on tourism and crime was conducted in Australia, and this and other studies suggested that many tourist resorts suffer higher than average crime rates and that tourists are disproportionately victimised, but that tourists also often cause crime and disorder problems. This poses a dilemma for areas seeking to expand their tourism industry and in many resort areas the police have worked in local partnerships to alleviate the problems. However, there is surprisingly little hard data available for resort areas to allow policy makers to develop and evaluate appropriate responses. Using the author's experience as external advisor to a recent European initiative, this article considers the contribution of the police on two levels: firstly as providers of robust data on the relationship between tourism and crime; and secondly on responding to the problems identified by developing effective policies.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Migrants in police forces: A sociological attempt to
           get a broader picture
    • Abstract: Grutzpalk, Jonas
      In Europe there has been a lot of talk about the integration of migrants into the local and national police forces in the last quarter of a century. In my article I propose to practice what philosophers call epoche and suggest that we need to take a sociological step back to get a broader picture of what seems to be the problem in this debate.

      Sociologically speaking the question of the integration of migrants into police forces is the question of the integration of minorities into organisations. So from a sociological point of view the question is a rather general one: how are minorities integrated into organisations?

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Starting from scratch: Planning practices of police
           recruits in Western Australia
    • Abstract: Tudor-Owen, Jane; Scott, Adrian J; Henry, Pamela J; Bull, Ray
      Given the limited body of research concerning planning for investigative interviews, the aim of the present study was to examine what police recruits plan for in investigative interviews with witnesses. The study analysed the plans of 37 police recruits prepared on four occasions following specific points in their training at the Western Australia Police Academy. Each of the items from the plans was assigned to one of twelve categories: Introduction, Witness demographics, Interview demographics, Pre-existing information, Incident details, Elements, Defences, Legal, procedure, Interview procedure, Rapport building, Interviewing technique, and Other.

      Statistical analyses were conducted to determine how the proportion of items included in the categories changed across the four occasions. Findings indicate recruits consistently emphasise planning around Incident details, and include comparatively less items relating to Introduction and Rapport building. Encouragingly, items relating to Interview procedure and Interview technique occupy a greater proportion of the items in plans prepared following interviewing training. The findings presented provide encouragement for interview trainers as they show that targeted training may influence recruits' planning. As such, it is important to identify areas that are generally neglected in plans and to develop training that emphasises the inclusion of items related to these areas in order to facilitate the preparation of more balanced plans and interviews.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Who are the police and what is policing?
    • Abstract: Rogers, Colin
      At this time of much change to police organisations across the world, due to austerity or other issues such as increased terrorist threat, an opportunity arises for reflection upon what we actually mean by the terms police and policing. This is quite an important point, as there is a need to differentiate between the two concepts in order to introduce such changes and to provide an effective response to perceived threats.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Social media and police legitimacy
    • Abstract: Kelly, Andrew
      Police organisations in Australia and across the globe are increasingly turning to social media to enshrine and enhance their legitimacy. For more than five decades police and researchers have applied themselves to developing new and better ways to gain the consent and cooperation of citizens, without which police in a democratic society would be unable to operate effectively. Community policing provided the strategic and philosophical basis for many of the changes that have occurred over this time, but as a policing approach it has seemingly become less of a priority in many jurisdictions in recent years.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - County lines and wicked problems: Exploring the need
           for improved policing approaches to vulnerability and early intervention
    • Abstract: Coliandris, Geoff
      The UK National Crime Agency (NCA) intelligence assessment on the 'County Lines' criminal business model aims to raise awareness of an established though hitherto largely hidden and complex crime problem centred on the supply of Class A drugs. Key features of County Lines as 'wicked problem'-type enterprises are the exploitation and abuse of vulnerable people. The NCA assessment rightly highlights the safeguarding issues raised and makes a valuable contribution to the first stages of a viable problem-solving approach. However, subsequent efforts to deliver effective and sustainable responses are likely to be hampered by weaknesses located in the wider domain of policing, and in particular in the knowledge and understanding bases surrounding the concept of 'vulnerability'. Two emerging policing frameworks suggest promising ways forward for policing generally and responses to County Lines specifically. The one, referred to as 'vulnerable people policing', is centred in Australia while the other, termed 'early intervention', is emerging within mainstream UK policing discourse. This paper explores both frameworks and their interconnections. It argues that together, they offer fruitful possibilities for improving responses to vulnerable people, as well as for police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy.

    • Abstract: Goldsmid, Susan; Brown, Rick
      Police are on the frontline, dealing with the harms associated with illegal drug use. The National Drug Strategy noted that the role of police included the management and control of harms and risks associated with the extreme behaviours displayed by amphetamine type stimulants users (Ministerial Council on Drug Strategy 2011). Since publication of the National Drug Strategy, methamphetamine has been identified as a substance of particular concern to police and other frontline service personnel (Law Reform, Drugs and Crime Prevention Committee 2014).

  • Volume 7 Issue 1 - Responding to 'active shooter' incidents in Australia
    • Abstract: Hodgins, Gene; Saliba, Anthony
      The following article presents a summary of research that was undertaken for the NSW Police Force in 2014 to provide a review of the relevant worldwide 'active shooter' literature. The aims of the research were to identify: what makes a situation an 'active shooter' incident; the characteristics of previous 'active shooter' incidents, how they have been dealt with, and what has been found to work; and current 'best practice' for police in dealing effectively with an 'active shooter' incident (for full report see: Hodgins and Saliba, 2014). While the full report covers the international literature, the following article focuses on Australian 'active shooter' incidents and recommended police responses.

  • Volume 7 Issue 1 - Incident command decision-making: Perception vs Reality
    • Abstract: Davies, Amanda
      As the world turns to building resilience to the increasing threats to global and local peace and order research initiatives which inform on the training endeavours designed to advance decision-making skill development for incident commanders becomes a compelling imperative. In the often chaotic fast paced business of policing it is understandable that officers have little opportunity to pause and take stock of how the reality of decision-making experience transforms from perception to reality. This paper discusses a research project which traced the learning experience for a cohort of senior officers as they transitioned through an Incident Command and Control simulation based learning exercise to application on the frontline of policing. The key focus of the research was to identify the factors and their relative importance which are perceived to influence decision-making during management of a high risk high stakes policing response and whether in the reality of application the influential factors and their ranking change. A pre and post simulation survey was conducted followed by a field based interview four months post simulation participation. The findings suggest a clear shift in the factors and their level of influence identified prior to the simulation exercise and a further shift when decisions are made in the field of operation. The findings have implications for the strategic positioning of simulation based training and its content within police education and training for operational policing. More widely the findings offer guidance for education and training initiatives for practitioners in professions with responsibilities for emergency management.

  • Volume 7 Issue 1 - Taser! Taser! Problems underlying the police mis-use of
           electronic stun guns
    • Abstract: Rogers, Colin
      The use of Tasers, or electronic stun guns, in many western democratic style countries such as the UK and Australia, appears to be on the rise and often involves contentious circumstances that are reported in the media. In conjunction with other forms of state sanctioned force available to the police, the use of such devices rests within what is termed a continuum of force. Here an escalation of police force depends upon the resistance offered towards the police, or perceived levels of danger to other individuals. Notwithstanding the general right of the police to use coercive force, the misuse of such devices can have a detrimental impact upon police/community relations. This article explores the relationship between police and community with regard to the misuse of Taser, utilising examples from England and wales and Australia, and suggests this misuse or 'over- use' of devices can have a damaging effect upon police legitimacy.

  • Volume 7 Issue 1 - Is anyone remotely interested?: The rise of the
           police drone
    • Abstract: Coliandris, Mike; Coliandris, Geoff
      Drone (known by other names) use is proliferating worldwide, driven by a commercial imperative. Police services are variously considering, trialling, routinely using or planning to expand use of such technology though the overall picture can be characterised as piecemeal, limited and variable. Drones face an image problem largely due to their warfare connotations. Beyond this image problem lie more substantive concerns about drone use generally linked to questions around public privacy, civil liberties, ethics, governance and accountability. Each of these concerns has relevance to the policing domain and holds potential to adversely impact police-public relations and police legitimacy.

      The police-technology relation is already contested and controversial, particularly around issues of social control and the weaknesses of the empirical foundations underpinning related strategies and claims. For some, drones represent a further step towards a dystopian future. A balanced assessment of drones for policing purposes suggests both possibilities and advantages as well as challenges and threats, particularly from a democratic policing model perspective. However, the debate at present on this unfolding landscape of police use of drones is marked by a lack of information, transparency and rigour.

      Police in democratic societies have multiple roles and responsibilities. This includes exploiting the most effective technologies to deliver safety and security. However, they are also required to engage with communities at each important stage in the development of policing. Finally, any future drone governance and accountability framework will need to take into account as far as is practicable a range of voices and be founded on the principles that police in democratic societies are charged to safeguard and adopt.
