Autumn edition of Police Life out now

This year Victoria Police celebrates a century of women in policing. Police Life looks at how the organisation is moving towards a more diverse, inclusive and respectful police force, and talks to some women in the job about their experiences. 

Also find out how police gathered to remember the victims of the Bourke Street tragedy and the impact it has had. 

Other stories include:

  • Out and about with remote stations Edenhope and Apsley. 
  • Scientists are developing new ways to analyse drugs that will help police target manufacturing. 
  • Haydn Blake, a senior constable at the Air Wing, is reunited with his childhood letter detailing his dream to be in the squad. 
  • Police crack open the case of a network of crop houses in the Brimbank area.
