Between 4th March 2013 and 22nd March 2013, the Australian Institute of Police Management (AIPM) hosted the 125th Police Management Development Program (PMDP 125).

The PMDP program provides participants an opportunity to reflect upon their own leadership styles and experiences and to focus on their professional and personal development. PMDP 125 saw participants from most Australian police jurisdictions and members of our international law enforcement community from Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption, New Zealand Police and Indonesia National Police.<read more>

Truth in Justice, Legitimacy and Compliance with the Law Seminar
This seminar, on Monday 15th October, will present the results of a large-scale empirical test of procedural justice theory in 26 European countries. A team based largely at LSE, Oxford and Birkbeck has used the fifth round of the European Social Survey (ESS) to test an elaboration of procedural justice theory which combines ideas from the work of Tom Tyler and David Beetham.
The ESS is an academically driven survey with around 50,000 respondents. In each round there are 'rotating modules' for which researcher can bid, and we were successful in winning space for questions on trust in justice. Our analysis shows that in most countries covered by the ESS public trust in the fairness of justice institutions supports public belief in their legitimacy, which in turn promotes cooperation and compliance with the law. The study has important implications about the quality of treatment received by the public from police and courts officials. <click for more details>

AIPM ALUMNI WORKSHOP - Enhancing Police Leadership: Developing More Effective Leaders and Leadership
(4th May 2012, 9am-12.30pm. AIPM Common Heath Room)
Though leaders and leadership are of central importance in police organisations, officers frequently lament that they do not see effective leadership on a routine basis. Given the changes confronting policing on a global scale, this perceived lack of leadership has serious consequences. Historically, most police agencies, particularly in the United States, have failed to adequately develop leaders. Compounding this situation is the tendency for policing scholars to overlook the study of leadership in favour of assessments of supervisory influence, management style, and administrative aptitude.<read more> <Alumni Flyer>
