CSU and WA police join forces
1 JANUARY 2003
CSU and Western Australia Police have joined forces to recognise the qualifications and experiences gained by WA Police officers towards three CSU qualifications.
Charles Sturt University (CSU) and Western Australia Police have joined forces to recognise the qualifications and experiences gained by WA Police officers towards three CSU qualifications.
The mutual benefits for both organisations were recently recognised with the signing of a formal agreement on 24 July in Sydney by Associate Dean for Policing in CSU’s Faculty of Arts, Associate Professor Tracey Green, and WA Police Assistant Commissioner (Professional Development), Mr Gary Dreibergs, APM.
“Both organisations have worked together for some time to formally recognise the professional tertiary level training, experience and assessment that Western Australian Police officers undertake as part of their ongoing career development programs,” said senior policing academic in CSU’s School of Policing Studies, Mr Brian Daly.
WA Police officers can now receive credit for previous studies and experience towards the CSU Bachelor of Policing or Bachelor of Policing (Investigations) courses offered by the School of Policing Studies, and the Leadership and Management (Policing) and Investigation Management postgraduate programs through CSU’s Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security.
“We also acknowledge and applaud the intensive operational and management training that senior and middle level Western Australian Police officers have received to date,” Mr Daly said.
“WA Police have recognised the value of Charles Sturt University policing qualifications, and will promote those programs to their officers as study options and further opportunities for their professional growth.
“We look forward to seeing greater numbers of WA Police officers joining our courses, and bringing their experiences from their unique policing environment.”
