  • School Based Policing Model

(13 August 2018) We have been co-designing a School Based Policing model with NT Assistant Police Commissioner Michael Murphy. It is a pleasure to partner and collaborate together to develop solutions. When families, schools and police work together, our communities are stronger.

Thank you Assistant Commissioner for understanding that proactive school policing builds positive relationships between police, students, families and schools.  For further information, go to our School Based Policing page.
