Disability Liaison Officers

Disability Liaison Officers (DLOs) help and support people with disability who need help accessing police services.

Disability Liaison Officers (DLOs) are police officers who help people with disability to access police services.

Victoria Police have DLOs in place across Victoria in every Police Service Area. They are an important contact point for the disability community. 

What a Disability Liaison Officer (DLO) does

The DLOs are police officers that work with people with disability who encounter barriers to accessing police services. They can also help carers or the families of someone with disability. 

They work with the broader disability community in their local area. They also help their colleagues to better engage with the disability community.

You can find DLOs all around Victoria, in every Police Service Area.

Contact a DLO

Speak to a police officer at the following locations to get in contact with a DLO. 

If there is no DLO in your suburb, contact the closest station to you, and they will help you find one.
