A violence prevention strategy developed by a Monash academic has been honoured nationally.
The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix Public Order Plan, developed by Associate Professor Arthur Veno, director of the Centre for Police and Justice Studies, was chosen as a finalist in the recent 1998 Australian Violence Prevention Awards (AVPA). Finalists received $2000 and a certificate of merit.
Ms Judith Dixon from the AVPA selection committee congratulated Dr Veno on the high standard of the strategy. "Your project will be used as a model for others working in the area," she said.
Dr Veno said the Grand Prix Public Order Plan, developed at the invitation of the Victoria Police Major Incident Planning Unit, had been enormously successful.
The strategy of involving motorcyclists themselves in maintaining order had helped to eliminate violence from an event which, more than 10 years ago, had been plagued by chronic violence, he said.
