Project Details

Project Description

This project will analyse the nature and impact of efforts to shift from commanc and control-based governance to more collaborative structures and processes at Victoria Police (VP). Using for related case studies, organisational changes will be assessed across a range of levels, including local service delivery. The research provides a new, theoretically-based intersection between public sector management and police studies. Its methodology will be congruent with its focus, for collaboration will be modelled through the research process as well as being its subject. The project will assist VP to continue to improve its responsiveness to its various constituencies, partcularly at the community level.
