In an effort to explore new ways to continue providing first-class eduction, IBZ Gimborn is now proud to offer its first online lecture by videocast, in collaboration with Henrik Andershed, Professor of Criminology and Psychology at the Örebro University, Sweden.

In his videocast, Henrik Andershed discusses what to expect in terms of crime development during the coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Should we expect some crimes to increase, and others to decrease? Furthermore, Professor Andershed suggests what we can do to prevent an increase in crime during these times of restrictions and isolation in our homes.

IBZ Gimborn is currently also working on a webinar series on International Terrorism with 6 international speakers. The plan is to offer one session of around 40 minutes, plus discussions, per week.

A further webinar series with the police writers around David Lewis (Section UK), as well as a German webinar on retirement are also in the pipeline.

IBZ Gimborn hope that there will be a large uptake of this new service offered and look forward to seeing everyone in person in its beautiful castle, once IBZ Gimborn is open again. 

We are happy to present you our first IBZ Gimborn Podcast! How do you like it?

In our first episode Professor Karl ROBERTS, Professor of Policing & Criminal Justice at the School of Social Sciences & Psychology | Western Sydney University (Parramatta), explores the challenges for police of Covid19, first from the perspective of previous pandemic plans, then looks at day to day challenges such as enforcing, often unclear, legislation, changes in crime patterns, officer wellbeing, then explores what policing in the post COVID19 WORLD MIGHT LOOK LIKE.

Dear IPA family,

The Australian IPA Section has been inundated with messages and warm wishes from individuals, Branches and Sections from around the World in addition to the International Executive, offering prayers and support for us as we attempt to recover from the severe bushfires throughout this summer across Australia.  The loss of life, properties and native animals has been devastating.

We have discussed the bushfire situation at our National Executive Skype meeting recently and also sent out messages canvassing our membership.  We believe that to date, thankfully, no IPA members have been greatly affected as a result of the bushfires.

On behalf of the Australian Section could you please pass on our sincere appreciation for all of the thoughts and offers of support from our extended IPA family.  Such a great display of friendship from our IPA mates certainly help heal the wounds left from the fires and truly demonstrate the IPA spirit and camaraderie.
