Isabelle started her studies in the French military, and holds a PhD from La Sorbonne-Paris IV, in Paris, France (her country of origin), where she studied under the supervision of Prof Sophie Body-Gendrot. She holds two post-doctoral degrees: one from the Australian National University, where she managed the youth pilot of the NEXUS Policing Project (RegNet); and one from the International Centre for Comparative Criminology (University of Montréal, Quebec, Canada), where she worked on community and restorative justice.

Isabelle worked as a researcher in Cape Town, South Africa, on disadvantaged communities and policing, before coming to Australia. Prior to joining the University of Tasmania, Isabelle was a senior lecturer at Charles Sturt University, and taught at the NSW Police College in Goulburn.

She sits on the Tasmanian Sentencing Advisory Council, and nationally, she sits on the Australian Crime Prevention Council as the executive member for Tasmania.

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.

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.
