AUSTRALIA DAY AWARD

Recognition for daughter of Greek migrants

 

February 2019

The daughter of Greek migrants, Nick and Christina Panayiotou from Lachania Rhodes, Joanne Shanahan of Adelaide, was one of the recipients of the Australian Police Medal in this year's Australia Day Awards, recognising her distinguished service to the community.

Chief Superintendent Joanne Shanahan joined the South Australia Police (SAPOL) in 1981 and was designated as a Detective in December 1992. She served in both uniformed and CIB roles, including specialist crime areas, until her promotion to the rank of Inspector in 2002.

She has shown superior leadership and committment in the field of family and domestic violence with her involvement in this complex area beginning in 1999 as the Officer in Charge of a Local Service Area Family and Domestic Violence Investigation Unit.

In 2013 she was integral to the development of the Multi Agency Protection Service (MAPS), leading the cross-government project team from concept stage to implementation in 2014 when she was appointed as the inaugural Officer in Charge of the Family and Domestic Violence Branch.

Her management con-tributed significantly to MAPS developing vital resources including case management software, sophisticated risk assess-ment and triaging systems.

Chief Superintendent Shanahan has provided a voice on both the state and national stage relative to policing domestic violence and is an outstanding advocate for domestic violence victims in the community. She is seen as a leader in this field and highly regarded for her strategic views and experience.

She has excelled in this role, delivering considerable benefits to SAPOL and the South Australian community.
