Forensic Services Constable Tania Curtis recognised as ‘Most Outstanding Female Practitioner’ at Excellence in Policing Awards, TAS

Constable Tania Curtis from Tasmania Police’s Forensic Services was recognised with the Most Outstanding Female Practitioner Award at the 2018 Australasian Council of Women and Policing (ACWAP) Excellence in Policing Awards last Thursday, Tasmania Police say.

“Tania is an integral and respected member of Tasmania Police Forensic Services with expert skills and knowledge in this demanding field,” said Inspector Grant Twining.

“She is a skilled forensic practitioner and inspirational leader and mentor recognised across the country as an individual with very considerable expertise in a variety of forensic fields.

“I take this opportunity to congratulate Tania on her award and thank her for the valuable contribution she makes to the field of Forensic Services and Tasmania Police.”

Receiving the Most Outstanding Female Practitioner Award, sponsored by the Police Association of New South Wales, Constable Curtis said:

“To Commissioner Hine, Inspector Twining, and Tasmania Police, thank you for providing me with the support and opportunity to pursue my passion for crime scene examination, learning and teaching.”

“My policing journey has provided me with a wide view of humanity. I have seen the best and the worst. It has shown me my strengths and weaknesses, provided me with amazing friends and the opportunity to help my community.”

“I am honoured to receive this award and dedicate it to former Tasmania Police officer, now dearly departed, Bec Bain.  Bec was my best friend, an amazing human and a fantastic police officer. She inspired me to be a better person.  She was strong, loyal and honest and I shared many of the best and worst moments of my life with her.”

The Australasian Council of Women and Policing (ACWAP) Awards recognise the achievements of some of the leading women and men in law enforcement. Now in its 20th year, the awards publicly acknowledge and reward those who are contributing to improving policing and law enforcement and ensuring policing services are enhanced for women.
