Message from the Chief Commissioner

Crime Prevention & Community Safety

Release date: Thu 29 March 2007

Last updated: Fri 7 February 2014

Victoria Police works together with the people of Victoria to make our state safe. This page links to some advice, support and further information. One of the most important aspects of police work is crime prevention.

Pro-active crime prevention programs are a key focus.  The organisation's members seek to develop links within the local community, schools, ethnic communities, local business and other groups to reduce the incidence and impact of crime. Victoria Police understands the importance of community partnerships in reducing crime and in providing a safer place to live.

Partnerships are achieved through community based crime prevention programs such as Neighbourhood Watch and a network of full time Crime Prevention Officers.  Community consultation and education are key parts of this process.

Beyond preventing, investigating and solving crime, Victoria Police offers support and understanding to the victims of crime, their families and friends.
