Measuring Progress in Gender Equity in Australian Policing
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports on a survey of police agencies in Australia regarding key indicators of gender equity. The survey was designed to identify the nature of change in the last decade and to test the capacity of senior management to evaluate performance. Marked differences were found between agencies in achieving progress and these differences indicated that management policies strongly influenced outcomes. It was also apparent that a greater commitment is needed to comprehensive data collection in order to properly diagnose and remedy inequities.
