2022 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Award: Walk of Life Program

Prize: AwardExternal award


I was invited by the Queensland Police Service as I am an active consultant/supervisor to receive the Silver Award for crime prevention programming for the Walk of Life program with Senior Constable Mark Cartner.

Walk of Life Program, Queensland Police Service
The Walk of Life program is a high school based accredited program developed by the Queensland Police Service combined with a registered training organisation to target at-risk children. It incorporates vocational training to develop work-ready skills and addresses barriers to learning using police child protection systems. It operates within a school to address children’s needs using a multiagency response. The program also incorporates Indigenous content to facilitate reconciliation and an understanding of country. Formally evaluated, the program encourages change and has the potential to be implemented in targeted schools throughout Queensland.
