Aust Police Journal   2

Australian Police Journal (APJ) is one of Australasia’s pre-eminent non-fiction publications about policing, so we are excited to be introducing it to the 2RPH program. APJ will be a fortnightly program starting from Saturday 10th of November at 4:30pm.

What will the program be about?

The Australian Police Journal (APJ) is a non-fiction publication about policing on behalf of all the Police Commissioners of Australia to educate police and the community, in policing related topics. The articles about crimes that have been solved both in past and present times are written by police and related professionals and have a direct relevance to Australian policing.

How did the idea for this program come about?

I have had a subscription to the magazine for the past 28 years and when I started at 2RPH I thought it would be interesting to read to a larger audience.

What do you hope listeners take away from this program?

People generally have an interest in how policing works and how crimes are solved. The program will inform interested members of the community, in policing and related topics - both contemporary and historical.

What sources do you use for this program?

APJ is published quarterly. The journal now has over 22,000 subscribers throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Region.

What do you love about being part of 2RPH?

I love the challenge of reading live on the radio and the lovely people I read with on air.

Lastly, how long have you been volunteering with 2RPH and what other 2RPH programs can listeners hear you on?

I started in 2009 as a fill in reader and then began doing Breakfast every second Saturday which I have been doing for the past few years. In 2017, I joined the Australian Women’s Weekly recording team which airs every Friday.
