Toby is currently part of a project that is being undertaken as part of the Australian Research Council’s Linkage Project (LP110100585) titled “Targeted Crime: Policing and Social Inclusion”. Chief Investigators: Sharon Pickering, Monash University; Gail Mason, The University of Sydney; Jude McCulloch, Monash University; JaneMaree Maher, Monash University; Lorraine Mazerolle, The University of Queensland, Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security; Rebecca Wickes, The University of Queensland. The overall goal of the Linkage Project is to undertake a criminological study of the policing of targeted incidents and crime, that is, incidents and crimes motivated by bias, prejudice or hatred towards members of particular groups, communities and individuals. It will develop a best practice policing framework for policing targeted crimes and incidents. The goal of the project is to ascertain the factors that facilitate or constrain the capacity of police recruits and protective services officers (PSOs) to appropriately classify and deal with prejudice motivated crime (PMC) upon completion of PMC training at the Victoria Police Academy.
