This paper reflects on the process of change as South Australia Police moves from a primarily institution-based model of professional development to a more integrated model which emphasises the workplace as an important and complementary site of learning. It examines the extent to which and the way in which the workplace adapts to meet the challenges presented by the introduction of work-based learning, and what impact this change has on the way work is constructed and performed by police.
