I would like to take this opportunity to announce the recent, and very significant, appointment of Professor Jenny Fleming to the Institute and to extend to her a very warm welcome from all of us at TILES. Jenny's appointment as Research Professor is extremely significant in that the Institute now has an experienced researcher with expertise in policing as a core member of the team. We wish to thank the Dean of Arts, Professor Jan Pakulski, and the former Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research) Professor Andrew Glenn for supporting her appointment through the provision of funding under the University's strategic initiative program. With Jenny on board, TILES is now in a strong position to increase its research profile nationally and internationally and to conduct research more specifically on matters relating to policing per se. This is a very exciting time for the Institute - Jenny and I are working together to prepare an extensive program of research over the next few years that will see TILES consolidate its reputation for quality research in the Welcome to the TILES Newsletter No. 3 field of law enforcement. There will be dedicated space in the TILES newsletters for Jenny to inform you of her research activities and outputs. In the meantime, I can report that she and I, together with Inspector Matthew Richman of Tasmania Police, attended the International Committee for the Prevention of Crime Conference held in Canberra in September. This conference was jointly organised with the Australian Institute of Criminology and we thank the Director of the AIC, Toni Makkai, for supporting our attendance. Matthew's presentation on the Streetsafe project provided an opportunity to profile both TILES and Tasmania Police and to demonstrate the nature of our successful research collaborations. Jenny's well-established connections in Canberra ensured that the others attending the conference were made aware of the Institute's work. Next year we are planning to produce the newsletter on a more regular basis, to establish a regular seminar series and Jenny has been successful in receiving funding from the Academy of Social Sciences to hold a workshop in September 2007. We will provide you with more information on these events in future newsletters so please keep an eye out for them! Finally, on behalf of all of us at TILES, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to keeping in touch with you in 2007. Roberta Julian - Associate Professor and Director Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies
