The Commissioner of Police, Grant Stevens, today offered his congratulations to Assistant Commissioner Bronwyn Killmier on her appointment as the South Australian Commissioner for Victims’ Rights.
“The Assistant Commissioner has an impressive background having worked in a variety of operational management and policy areas in South Australia Police (SAPOL), including uniform and criminal investigation at both metropolitan and rural locations within the state,” he said.
“She has also worked at a management level interstate and overseas, having completed a Fellowship program in criminal investigative analysis (commonly known as offender profiling), at the FBI Academy, Quantico, Virginia, and worked across Australasian policing in this field.
She has a number of certificates of appreciation from other agencies, and has been recognised by SAPOL for her work in relation to a number of high-profile murder inquiries.
In addition, she has an impressive academic record, including a Master of Studies (Criminology and Police Management) from the University of Cambridge, and a Master of Business Administration from the University of South Australia and has been instrumental in developing SAPOL policy and procedures including high risk driving, custody management, and has led alcohol, drug and traffic reform initiatives.
“Appointed as an Assistant Commissioner in 2007, in charge of counter terrorism and emergency management, she has overseen a wide variety of areas since then including Operations Support Service, Southern Operations Service, Metropolitan Operations Service and, most recently, State Operations Service responsible for road safety and for providing a policing service to 97 per cent of the state, including remote communities.
“I would personally like to congratulate Bronwyn on this new appointment which will see her leave the South Australia Police in July 2018 and take up her new position in August,” Commissioner Stevens said.
“I would also like to thank her for the dedicated service she has provided to the Australian community since she joined SAPOL in 1977 and acknowledge that she is currently our longest serving female police officer.
“Her experience and dedication have made her a valued member of our organization, and I’m sure will prove invaluable in her new role.”
