Victoria Police strives to be an inclusive, accessible, equitable and responsive organisation in service delivery, and as an employer, of people with disabilities.

Victoria Police's Accessibility Action Plan outlines the organisation's commitment to people with disabilities.

There are four main goals identified to ensure Victoria Police:

  • delivers accessible and equitable policing services
  • is an inclusive and engaging organisation
  • improves its capacity to employ, develop and retain people with disabilities
  • is a workforce with the right attitude and right capability

This action plan has been developed in close alignment with and recognition of the Victorian Disability Act 2006, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 and the Equal Opportunities Act 2010.
