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.
