About AIPM

The Australian Institute of Police Management (AIPM) is an educational organisation with an extensive history in educating public safety leaders. Since the early 1960’s, the AIPM has been integral in developing police and emergency service leaders and executives with more than 6,500 senior officials from policing, law enforcement, public safety, emergency services and other like-minded organisations attending AIPM courses.

The AIPM’s international reputation as one of the leading educational institutions in the public safety sector has been brought about by our continual evolution; examining new ideas and practises in public safety thinking, our executive staff’s experience and capabilities and the leading academics that make up our teaching cohort. The AIPM is recognised world leader in the development and delivery of education and development for individuals and organisations involve in the innovative provision of policing, law enforcement, security, public safety, emergency services and related professions.

AIPM programs are renowned for their outstanding quality, including a number of accredited courses under the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).  Our programs continually evolve to stay current in today’s volatile and fast changing landscape and are often born from research workshops involving high ranking public safety leaders and the world’s leading academics.

Our programs bring a wealth of diversity and experience to our classroom activities, in no small part thanks to our prestigious Visiting Fellows from Australasian policing jurisdictions, the Australian Federal Police, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Metropolitan Police in London, the Scottish Police College, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Hong Kong Police and numerous respected universities such as Cambridge and Harvard. This diversity brings an international dimension to our courses, developing our alumni’s international professional network.

AIPM programs have received several honours, including the awards; ‘Excellence in Law Enforcement for Women Initiative 2017’ from the Australasian Council of Women and Policing Award’s and the Silver award at the Queensland Police Commissioner’s awards; and as finalists for the ‘Dame Quentin Bryce Award for Gender Equity in the Workplace’ from the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) and the Performance award from the Queensland Premier’s Award for Excellence, in 2016.
