POL Police Surveillance

Project Scope

Changes in technology, police surveillance practices and procedures have impacted on the skills and knowledge requirements of police personnel undertaking surveillance work.

 

This project will review the Advanced Diploma of Surveillance and eight Units of Competency in the Police Training Package to ensure they reflect current industry practice. Police require the qualification and units be updated to address changes in the general skills required to perform surveillance roles.

 

Police surveillance is a specialist role within policing which requires officers to possess a contemporary understanding and awareness of legislative and procedural governance, judicial systems and evidence, developments in how technological capabilities contribute to surveillance techniques and how evolving crime types may necessitate changes to surveillance practices.

 

This qualification is designed to qualify Police officers to employ broad knowledge and highly skilled practice in surveillance within a covert policing environment.

 

The Public Safety Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will not be formed for this project and the draft material is Not for Public Access (NFPA) and will not be made available publicly during consultation. Consultation with police subject matter experts during the development will be co-ordinated through Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency (ANZPAA).

 

Timeline

The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 29 April 2022.
