RMIT University's College of Business last month hosted the first Melbourne-based Asia Region Law Enforcement Management Program (ARLEMP).
This unique program is a collaborative initiative between the University, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and RMIT Vietnam.
ARLEMP is driven by an AFP initiative to create a learning experience for senior policefrom Asia as a foundation to foster closer future working relationships across national borders in the region.
Attending the first Melbourne based ARLEMP were 16 senior ranked police officers from the Pakistan Police Force. The group spent four weeks sharing knowledge and enhancing their skills in the areas of leadership, change management, project management, communications, analysis and reporting.
Throughout the program the officers were presented with a strong personal challenge about their own values and cultural mores.
As a collaborative project the program brought together a wide mix of experts and lecturers from the College of Business, the School of Global Studies, Social Science and Planning, AFP, RMIT Vietnam and related external organisations.
At the closing ceremony the AFP Assistant Commissioner, Kevin Zuccato and Pro Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President Business, Professor Gill Palmer emphasised the significance of this collaborative initiative.
With further programs scheduled, ARLEMP presents an excellent collaborative model of how RMIT and the public and private sectors can work together to deliver high quality, unique training programs to a global audience.
