Meeting AIPM Executive Director Stuart Bartels APM
As a part of his continuing international Policing Friendship Tour, PolicingTV Founder and Publisher, Bernard Rix, recently travelled to Australia, to film and share examples of good and excellent policing initiatives from across the country.
Since the early 1960’s, the Australian Institute of Police Management (AIPM) has been integral in developing police leaders, with more than 6,500 senior officials from policing attending AIPM courses and events. The Institute has both a national and global profile and reputation, for example playing a key role in the international Global Policing Innovation Exchange (GPX) Program. The GPX plays an increasingly influential role in law enforcement across the world, allowing policing leaders to share ideas and initiatives.
In this fourth video of four, AIPM Executive Director Stuart Bartels APM talks about his work at the helm of the AIPM, and links it to his previous career as a Western Australia Police officer, where he’d experienced the very best of the support that the Institute provides to police leaders. He speaks about the vision of the AIPM to focus on some key areas, including on women in leadership, indigenous leadership and crisis management leadership.
“Wherever I travel in the world, the issues of complexity… are appearing everywhere. And what is becoming really obvious is that we have to become more and more connected. Leadership and leader development can play a really strong role there.”
The conversation also covers the GPX Programme, the Pearls in Policing Programme and the linked International Action Learning Group, with all three increasingly well known across policing internationally. Stuart explores the link between these and the AIPM’s vision, contained in its Business Plan, to further develop the international partnerships the Institute enjoys.
Finally Stuart talks about some of the challenges that are shared by policing across the world, including on wellbeing and on the role of leaders in this area – a topic where Stuart has recently published an academic paper.
