Critical incidents and emergencies are often dynamic in nature, requiring operational commanders to develop and adapt response plans as incidents and emergencies unfold over time. Police leaders are responsible for commanding the policing response at critical incidents and emergencies within the constraints of relevant legislation, Victoria Police policies and accepted practices. This unit engages students in the higher order decision making skills and capabilities required of operational policing in an increasingly complex social, cultural and economic environment. Police work collaboratively with stakeholders and other emergency management agencies to build resilient communities and respond appropriately when required through command, control and coordination principles. Students will engage with assignment work grounded in critical reflection and decision making around policing critical incidents in ways that will synthesise their performance and the issues facing police today.
