Office use of force

Office use of force, Thursday 24 November 2022

Dr Ross Hendy (Monash University) shared his work on how operational police firearms policies in Australia, England and Wales, and New Zealand coalesce with changes in the rate of shootings, and challenge the routinely armed / non-routinely armed paradigm. Associate Professor Clare Farmer (Deakin University) discussed media representation of officer involved shootings and gun handling in police dramas and differences in these representations between Britain and the United States, changes overtime, and broader social implications.
