Research Intern - Perception of Crime

WA Police Force — Semester 1 (February - May)

Our community is inundated with a range of information relating to crime – election campaigns, news stories, social media (news sites, community pages), websites (crime statistics) and also features as the subject matter in a variety of television shows.

How this information is interpreted and therefore how it influences the community’s perception of crime and fear of crime has become a concern for Police. This takes time from priority issues as Police are needed to attend community meetings, Ministerials, negative social media posts and general community engagement. The intern will conduct research (desktop research and interviews – community, Local Governments, Police, social media pages, surveys) to develop an understanding of the perception of crime amongst the community.
