Learning to Work Together: Police and Academics

Show Summary Details


There has been increasing recognition in Australia of the potential for collaborative research relationships between police and academics. Despite significant improvements in partnership arrangements and research outcomes, however, it would be naïve to suggest that the working relationship is always smooth. Drawing on the author’s personal experiences and understanding of working with police, this article considers the views of both police and academics working together. It suggests that continuous communication, negotiation, and understanding where the other party sits are crucial to productive working relationships.
