Charles Sturt University (CSU) was recognised for its contribution to criminal intelligence training in Australia at the annual Australian Institute of Professional Intelligence Officers (AIPIO) conference last night (Thursday 3 November) in Sydney.
Coordinator of CSU’s criminal intelligence courses Patrick Walsh accepted the Institute’s education award for 2005, which recognised the University for providing the most notable contribution to intelligence education and training.
On presenting the award, AIPIO Vice President Chris Clark said CSU won this recognition due to its range of criminal intelligence courses and easy access for students, as well as the extensive industry experience of its academic staff.
“Importantly, the University enjoys a number of strategic teaching and research partnerships with State and national law enforcement agencies in Australia, helping to ensure that its courses continue to be both relevant and useful,” he said.
CSU delivers certificate, diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate award courses in criminal intelligence through the Manly-based Australian Graduate School of Policing, delivered via distance education to its students.
“At this time of relative international insecurity and growth in the nation’s intelligence services, this award recognises that CSU is well placed to offer applicable and well focused education for Australia’s current and future intelligence officers,” Mr Walsh said.
Mr Walsh received the award from Mr Clark at the formal dinner for Intelligence 2005, the annual AIPIO conference held last night at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney.
