Fraser Waldron is a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide’s Law School. His research focus is on law enforcement intelligence frameworks as they relate to threats to public safety, with a particular focus on information in the pre-criminal space.

Within this role he manages a community-led intelligence initiative with a focus on unusual and suspicious activity as it relates to organized crime and threats to public safety.
