Biography

Nicole has worked with and for policing services for over 25 years, primarily in relation to vulnerable victims. Before returning to the University of Tasmania, Nicole was the Associate Professor of Policing and Criminal Justice at Western Sydney University, and Senior Lecturer at Deakin University. In addition to her academic roles at UTas, Nicole is the Co-Director of the Vulnerability, Resilience & Policing Research Consortium, and Secretary of the Australian Hate Crime Network. Along with Dr Isabelle Bartkowiak-Théron, Nicole has published widely on policing encounters with vulnerable people, including three books: Policing Vulnerability (Federation Press), Policing Encounters with Vulnerability (Palgrave), and Policing Practices and Vulnerable People (Palgrave). Based on her work with rural police, and her critical analysis of policing innovations in the last twenty years, Nicole will publish in 2022 on Critical Policing Studies (Routledge).

Expertise

    Nicole’s research interests and expertise primarily relate to the experiences of interpersonal violence. Using critical and poststructuralist criminological and sociological theories, Nicole seeks to explore the experience of victimisation, and the strategies required to ameliorate the damage of victimisation. In collaboration with Dr Isabelle Bartkowiak-Théron, she has developed a theoretically rich and applied model of addressing the vulnerability that arises in police encounters, which has been adopted in various policing organisations in Australia and the UK. Nicole and Isabelle have published widely on this topic, including their recent authored book, Policing Practices and Vulnerable People (2021, Palgrave).

    Nicole has over 30 years’ experience advocating on behalf of victims, and investigating the lived experience of violence, including hate motivated, domestic, family and intimate-partner, honour-based, and sexual violence, vilification, and discrimination. Much of this work has been done in collaboration with non-government organisations and support services, as well as policing organisations. Recently, Nicole has undertaken a pilot ethnographic study into the work of rural, remote, and regional policing in Tasmania, which she hopes to expand in the coming years. This work has been critical in the development of her theoretical work on propinquity and policing, which aims to provide a roadmap out of many of the “wicked problems” encountered by police.

  • Hate crime or prejudice related violence
  • Rural policing
  • Vulnerability and policing
  • Sexual violence
  • Domestic, family, and intimate-partner violence

Research Themes

Nicole’s research aligns to the University’s research theme of Better Health. In particular, her work focuses on the intersections between law enforcement and public health. Her work on ameliorating the iatrogenic harms of policing, along with devising strategies to support vulnerable people as they traverse the criminal justice system, necessarily requires a transdisciplinary approach that draws on the preventative frameworks of public health.

Collaboration

Nicole is currently collaborating with Australian, UK, and US colleagues across a range of topics. In partnership with Tasmania Police, she has undertaken the first stage of ethnographic research into rural, remote and regional policing in Australia. In conjunction with scholars at nine Australian universities, she will be undertaking a national study of ableism in academia. With colleagues at the UniMelb, RMIT, UTas, and in collaboration with ACON, Nicole is conducting a study into NSW LGBTQ+ people’s experiences of sexual violence. With colleagues at QUT and the University of Houston, she is undertaking a critical discourse analysis of Trump’s campaign speeches to reveal the textual-verbal hostility that underpins his communication. Nicole is also a CI on a longitudinal study into the sexual health and attitudes of Australian prisoners, which is led by colleagues at UNSW. With colleagues at the University of Sydney, CSU and University of South Australia, Nicole will be expanding the pilot study into attacks against Australian mosques. In the coming years, she will work with her colleagues in Policing and Emergency Management to undertake an evaluation of the police professionalisation agenda, and to consider the key tipping points where vulnerability can be addressed holistically.

  • Criminological theories (440205)

Research Objectives

  • Law enforcement (230404)
  • Criminal justice (230403)
  • Gender and sexualities (230108)

Publications

Nicole has published widely in both academic and practitioner fora. In particular, her decade-long collaboration with Dr Isabelle Bartkowiak-Théron has generated a range of research, report, and policy outputs that continue to influence policing policies and practices in relation to working with vulnerable people. While she enjoys writing for practitioner audiences (such as the large research reports completed for Tasmania Police and the London Metropolitan Police), it is her theoretical work on vulnerability, “crip” studies, hate, and propinquity that motivates her to explore new areas of interpersonal violence.

Grants & Funding

Nicole has received funding support for many of her past and current projects, including most recently, contracted research on LGBTQ+ People’s Experiences of Sexual Violence (with ACON) and the Evaluation of the Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council Tasmania’s Consumer Engagement Strategy. She is a member of the interdisciplinary team conducting the Sexual Health and Attitudes of Australian Prisoners study, which received an NHMRC grant of $1.6m to conduct a 10-year follow-up investigation of prisoners’ experiences. In conjunction with colleagues in CALE, she has also been successful in gaining seed and pilot funding to initiate studies into LGBTIQ family exile, and the role of flexi-schools in LGBTIQ students’ pathways.
