Dear All,

The Centre for International  Governance and Justice together with the ARC Centre of Excellence in  Policing and Security present:

Practicalities of police building  in Timor-Leste
Commander Grant Edwards and Dr Gordon Peake,  Australian Federal Police
12.30pm Tuesday 2 September  2008
Room 1.04 Coombs Extension Building  (8)
Commander Grant Edwards heads the  Timor-Leste Police Development Program and is security adviser to the Secretary  of State-Security. Dr Gordon Peake is Senior Policy Adviser to the Timor-Leste  Police Development Program. Together they will discuss the current political  developments of the PNTL and will endeavour to frame those issues within wider  discourses about local ownership, international policing, and the applicability  of the formal model of policing.

"[The Timor-Leste Police Development  program] aims to maintain a safe, stable environment in East Timor conducive to  economic and social development. The program will help strengthen the capacity  of the police service to keep law and order while respecting human rights. The  program aims to help the East Timor's police force develop and review policies,  effectively manage its finances and personnel and use suitable operating  procedures. The program will build a community policing capability and promote  sustainable approaches to police training. The Australian Federal Police are  implementing the program. The United Kingdom also contributes resources to the  program."
