Dr Isabelle Bartkowiak-Theron is the coordinator of Police Studies in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Tasmania, and a senior researcher at the Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies (TILES).  Isabelle specialises in the qualitative and quantitative study of policing and policing services targeting vulnerable populations (e.g., young people, refugees, Aboriginal community members) and is in regular contact with representatives of these vulnerable populations.

Biography

Having worked with youth at risk in France, Isabelle went undertake her postdoctoral studies at the University of Montreal (International Centre for Comparative Criminology) became known in Australia for having managed the Youth Pilot Project of the Australian National University-Victoria Police Nexus Policing ARC linkage from 2004 until 2006. She also ran the two-year evaluation of the School-Liaison Police and the first stage of the Mental Health Intervention Teams evaluation in New South Wales, with Victoria Herrington, for the New South Wales Police Force, from 2007 until 2009.

Her work in partnership with a number of government and non-government agencies has contributed to her being contracted in 2011 on a Proceeds of Crime Funding scheme to evaluate a restorative conferencing project in the area of Albury (NSW), an initiative run and monitored by Albury Family Youth that targeted young recidivist offenders. Isabelle also evaluated the Tasmania Early Intervention Pilot Program for the Department of Police and Emergency Services, and the Mental Health Diversion List for the Hobart Magistrates Court. She is the co-editor (with Nicole Asquith) of Policing Vulnerability (Federation Press, 2012). She is a member of several research governance and community engagement committees throughout Australia, and sits on the Australian Crime Prevention Council as an executive member for Tasmania. She is an Advisory Board member for the Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health, and an editorial board member of the Journal of Criminological Research, Policy and Practice.

How do police educators perceptions of young peoples engagement in education inform their instructional practice? (2018)$14,678
Description
Interest in tertiary education in the criminal justice and policing professions is at an all-time high internationally, with growing scrutiny on the professionalisation of the criminal justice industry, through higher education schemes . Unsurprisingly, this increased attention focuses on what works, what does not, performance indicators and evidence of impact in the delivery of education for the industry. A lot of the police curriculum revolves around procedural justice, and how police officers should interact with vulnerable people (understandably, since 75% of police interaction in the field is with vulnerable people). However, not much research looks at the extent to which the attitudes (towards vulnerable groups) of those who teach future practitioners actually influence operational practice.As part of police work with vulnerable people, police interact with young people on a regular basis. Most, if not all evidence-based policing policy advise officers to arrest as a last resort, and to favour educative and reintegrative options in their interactions with young people.As a case-study, this project focuses on the instructional practice of police educators (police officers and academics) at recruit level on the specific topic of at-risk youth (as part of the recruits learning about vulnerable people). It is currently unclear whether police educators understand the links between disengagement from school and the behaviours that bring young people into contact with police. It is also unclear whether negative or positive attitudes in the police academy classroom become bias within teaching practice. In light of the historically tense relationship between youths and police, we want to see whether specific teaching behaviour in the classroom encourage a disassociation (or even distrust) between youth and police, contributing to cultures of conflict and distrust.Taking, as a case study, the interaction of police with young people, we seek to analyse:- whether any negative bias or attitudes are transferred to recruits during their training- how police educators understand the idea of young peoples engagement in education, and any benefit this may have on resilience and avoidance of criminal / delinquent careers- whether the above understanding is conveyed to recruits during their training.

Policing Difference, Policing Vulnerability (2015)$9,051
Description
The aims of this REGS application are to conduct fieldwork (in all Australia and New Zealand jurisdictions) to help ground upcoming publications and strengthen three competitive grant applications (in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Western Sydney, the Australian Institute of Police Management, the Australian and New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency and community support services). They are twofold:1. To undertake a comprehensive analysis of terminology used in all public documentation relating to vulnerable people. This includes all government policy documentation, all police internal policy available publicly, all written media documentation (with the exception of tabloids).2. To conduct interviews with police leaders (rank of inspector and above, via phone and skype) and police spokespersons for vulnerable groups, about their views on vulnerable people, the exact nature of their portfolio as the public face of policing, and their understanding of what vulnerability consists of.
