Film and television programs concerning police and forensic investigation are extremely popular.  Film makers are continually striving to improve the accuracy and realism of their productions. 

To assist, Victoria Police offer research assistance.  This includes checking scripts, providing advice on props and supplying police equipment.  Eg - police cars, uniforms, crime scene tape.

Common research enquiries include criminal and forensic investigation, crime scenes, conducting searches, surveillance and court procedure.

How do I apply?

Applications must be submitted in writing.  Include a synopsis about your production and your specific research questions or scenarios.

Submit applications via emailed direct to the Film & TV Office.
