Twilight Seminar - COVID UPDATE (CHANGE OF DATE/VENUE) 'Does the full moon need to be factored in when policing the Sunshine State?'

Does the full moon need to be factored in when policing the Sunshine State?

DUE TO THE COVID SITUATION IN BRISBANE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULE FOR 13 APRIL, 5-6PM.

Abstract:

Police and emergency medicine practitioners the world over will swear that ‘troubled behaviours’ manifest more commonly in some people during the full moon. Dr Geoff Sheldon completed his doctoral research to confirm or deny his own belief that police are busier during the full moon. After examining 908,000 jobs that police attended in South Brisbane in an eight-year period, his findings were as disappointing to him as they were unexpected (and disbelieved) by most police.

About the Speaker:

Dr Geoff Sheldon is a Superintendent in the QPS and has been a Queensland police officer for over 39 years, with more than 30 of those years as a Detective. He currently serves as the Crime Services Superintendent on the Gold Coast. Geoff holds a Masters Degree in leadership and management and a Doctorate in Policing and Security. The quirky nature of Geoff’s doctoral research received world-wide media attention. Geoff has presented his research internationally and had academic papers published outlining his findings.
