The NSW Chapter hosted its May Breakfast Seminar
The NSW Chapter hosted its Breakfast Seminar on Tuesday 29th May at our new venue at Sydney University. Professor Stephen Robertson presented a fascinating historical sweep of late ninetieth and early twentieth century American Private Investigators. Private Investigators were kept predominately busy at the industrial level (spying on labour) and with divorce proceedings (catching cheating partners in the act). America seems to have a far greater acceptance of private investigators than Australia (and other countries). Professor Robertson presented his presentation in conversation with Garner Clancey. Garner is the Deputy Director of the Sydney Institute of Criminology (University of Sydney).
We also had Andrew Bryson from the Arts, Communications, Finance and Property Services Training Advisory Body briefing us on a new program that is being trialled in Western Sydney schools. The program is introducing four modules as part of the year eleven and twelve syllabus of which one of these is Technical Security. A great opportunity to introduce a career option to school leavers.
