Angela Dwyer

Associate Professor, University of Tasmania

Dr Angela Dwyer is an Associate Professor in Police Studies and Emergency Management at the School of Social Sciences and Deputy Director of the Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies (TILES). Her research on how sexuality, gender, and sex diversity influences policing contributed to founding the niche discipline area of queer criminology, and she is founding co-chair of the Division of Queer Criminology for the American Society of Criminology. She coordinates a Professional Honours program linked with the promotional pathways of Victorian and Tasmanian police officers and teaches serving police officers skills around leadership and critical incident management to create more critically thinking police leaders, especially around policing vulnerable communities.
