The Australasian Council of Women and Policing is working to improve policing for women. It was established in August 1997 and is a growing group of women and men within police services and the community who are working together to improve the policing services provided to women, improve opportunities and outcomes for women within policing and participate in the global network of women in policing.
The Journal for Women and Policing is published twice yearly and contains features on outstanding individuals who have contributed to improving policing for women, news about the Council, and international and national events. The journal provides an important forum to discuss concepts and ideas on ways to achieve better policing for our community as well as dealing with the issues that affect the welfare and well-being of police women in general.
Your support is for our Council, it is not for the police service itself or the police union.
