Victoria Police responded immediately to the VEOHRC findings, with the establishment of victim centric responses focused on the impact and wellbeing of employees. Key services were established to support current and former employees including Safe Space.

The Safe Space hotline on 1300 364 522 is available to current and former Victoria Police employees and their families to provide confidential help and information for victims/targets of workplace harm, such as sex discrimination and sexual harassment, including predatory behaviour.

It is an external and independent service providing confidential advice, support and advocacy, available 24 hours/seven days a week/365 days per year state-wide and is independent of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Victoria Police.

The Safe Space service will not disclose information to Victoria Police that might identify a victim/target without their express consent.

The Professional Standards Command (PSC) Compliments and Complaints line on 1300 363 101 is available during business hours for other members of the Victorian community who have experienced sex discrimination and sexual harassment, including predatory behaviour relating to Victoria Police.
