The CPSU’s preferred option is Option 3 – one library, one location at TFS State Headquarters in Hobart, for  a number of reasons including:

  • It would be physically accessible to most DPEM  clients; for TASPOL / SES  employees undertaking research;  Sworn & unsworn staff studying for a university degree; and Legal research      for prosecution staff
  • It is the most convenient for central management of Police Forensics and Prosecutions library resources
  • Corporate risk is reduced by fostering a learning based culture and evidence based policy and practice.
