Welcome to the new-look Police Life.
This edition introduces features including Beyond the Badge, where a retired police officer tells the story of their career and life after Victoria Police and Career in Focus, a section looking at some of the organisation's leaders.
In a world first, Victoria Police is randomly testing drivers for drugs to prevent more road deaths. The Summer edition highlights the dangers of drug and drink driving and how the Road Policing Drug and Alcohol Section operates.
Also in this edition, look at how detectives are using forensic evidence frozen more than 25 years ago to solve cold cases.
