Fighting Crime with Empathy: COREY ALLEN

After a career in tactical units and high-volume arrest-oriented policing roles, Corey Allen redefined himself and his role by focusing on empathy, vulnerable persons and building his team’s personal values. His own journey from homelessness to Officer in Charge of one of Australia’s largest police stations has been marked by innovation and creativity in policing and crime prevention. Showing sustained commitment to social justice and improving the situation of vulnerable people in his division, Corey saw results in the form of unheralded crime reductions. A finalist in the “local hero” category of the Australian of the Year awards, recipient of four National Crime and Violence Prevention Awards, and Griffith University’s Alumnus of the Year, Corey has led a weighty shift in police culture that has been welcomed by the community.
