The information on this website is an important resource required by members of the community. Accessible online content assists in ensuring it is available to as many users as possible.
The Victoria Police website has been developed with the aim of complying with W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA accessibility standards and provides Recite Me – which is accessed via the 'Accessibility tools' option on the main menu – to allow users to customise the accessibility settings.
The website is designed to enable all site visitors to easily access its content and use its features. It is also designed to be compatible with mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones.
Portable Document Format (PDF) is the open de facto standard for electronic document distribution worldwide. Adobe PDF is a universal file format that preserves all of the fonts, formatting, colours, and graphics of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, navigated, and printed exactly as intended by anyone with the free Adobe Reader software. This format has been employed due to the nature of the documents, and the requirement for preserving their integrity.
Please note: The application form for a National Police Certificate has embedded business rules and requires Adobe Reader to function. If the website displays a message indicating you should upgrade your Adobe Reader it is detecting that the form is not opening with the required version to function. If your Adobe Reader is up to date download and save the application form to your desktop then open your Adobe Reader and use File Open to access the saved form. This should enable you to open it with Adobe Reader.
Accessing scanned PDF documents
A large number of PDF documents on the Victoria Police website are not accessible to screen readers. If you need to access a document using a screen reader please contact the Victoria Police Media and Corporate Communications Department who will provide you with an accessible file format.
