Victoria Police has committed to a target of 6% employment of people with disability by 2020, and 12% by 2025 within Victorian Public Services roles.
As an employer of choice, we value the contribution of people with disability and recognise their contribution to fully participate in their employment within our organisation. We are committed to offering the necessary reasonable adjustments for achieving this outcome.
Each year Victoria Police employs graduates with disability through the disability pathway of the Victorian Government Graduate Program. For more information see https://beta.vic.gov.au/victorian-government-graduate-program
From advertisement through to starting in a new role, applicants can seek reasonable adjustment to ensure the recruitment process allows all prospective applicants an equal opportunity to demonstrate that they are the best person for the job.

On the Job
The Employee Accessibility Advocacy Network (EAAN) is the voice of Victoria Police employees with disability. The Network is comprised of employees with disability and their supporters, including police members, Protective Services Officers (PSO) and Victoria Public Servants (VPS) from across Victoria.
Victoria Police has a Reasonable Workplace Adjustment policy to improve its capacity to employ, develop and retain people with disabilities. In addition, Victoria Police has a practice guide to support understanding and ensure compliance with policy.
All Victoria Police staff are invited to our annual celebration of International Day of People with Disability. The event includes an award ceremony to recognise Victoria Police employees, police stations or work units that have provided outstanding service to people with disability.
For further information on opportunities or supports for people with disability within Victoria Police please contact HRD-DIVERSITYUNIT-MGR@police.vic.gov.au
Please Note: Candidates with disability may not be eligible for Police, Protective Services Officer (PSO) and Police Custody Officer (PCO) roles. The Equal Opportunity Act 2010 allows exemptions where it is reasonably necessary to protect the health or safety of any person or of the public. Please ensure you meet the entry requirements of the Police, PSO or PCO roles before you apply. If you are unsure, please consult the Medical Guidelines and complete a Preliminary Medical Condition Enquiry before applying.
