The Australasian Institute of Policing

The Australasian Institute of Policing has been established by practitioners, for practitioners to further the policing profession and is therefore independent from police employers, government and the various industrial bodies.

More information as to the history and objects of the association can be found in our About Us section.



Beyond Blue


Hope this finds you well and looking forward to a successful and rewarding 2019.

Whilst continuing to support the AiPOL Journal, Professor Colin Rogers has passed the stewardship baton for the journal across to me, large shoes to fill and I am hoping we can continue to count on your support in the form of submission of articles.

The AiPOL journal seeks to offer our readers access to papers which include a more general discussion basis on policing and law enforcement related topics.

Articles are normally around 4-5000 words long ( or less) fully Harvard referenced and should have an abstract of around 100-150 words.

The next journal is due to the publishers on 25th May 2019. If you have some copy that is readily available to fit within the broad theme, we would be pleased to receive your work.

Advertising and copies of previous AiPol journals please email or fill in the contact us page.

Articles may be sent to me in the first instance at

Instructions to Authors and submission guidelines can be found here Submission Guide

The Australasian Institute of Policing (AiPOL) welcomes Dr Amanda Davies to the Chair as our AiPOL journal editor. Amanda brings with her a wealth of knowledge in relation to policing and law enforcement and we are privileged to have her performing this important role on behalf of AiPOL.

It would be very remiss of AiPOL not to acknowledge the significant work that has been carried out for a number of years by our dear friend and colleague, Professor Colin Rogers, in his capacity as editor of our journal.

We all have busy lives and time is precious. When academics of Amanda’s and Colin’s calibre give their valuable time to our Institute it is greatly appreciated.  Colin will continue to assist AiPOL in other capacities, which we are again grateful.

AiPOL gives all of us the opportunity to share information and knowledge with our colleagues across our law enforcement and national security community.

It is the dedication of Colin, Amanda and others that ensures that AiPOL continues to have a voice of reasoning and sound principles. AiPOL, through its publications does not just inform our members but helps initiate legislative and policy change to the benefit of all those within the policing and law enforcement community.

So, once again we welcome Dr Amanda Davies.
