VicPol Corporate

Victoria Police will progress and implement several initiatives in 2023–2024 to achieve our objectives and advance towards our vision for a safer Victoria.

Spotlight: The Aboriginal community

One of the key focus areas for Victoria Police in 2023-24 is to improve the way we interact with Aboriginal people.

Victoria Police supports the work of the Yoorrook Justice Commission, the first formal truth-telling process into injustices experienced by First Peoples in Victoria.

In May 2023, the Chief Commissioner of Police issued an unreserved apology to Aboriginal people for harm that has occurred as a result of interactions with police.

Over the next two years, we will implement a Chief Commissioner’s Statement of Commitment of organisation-wide uplift in how Victoria Police interacts with Aboriginal people, and progress actions required to deliver on the commitment.

Spotlight: Environmental impact

Victoria Police will continue to focus on reducing our impact on the environment.

As a large organisation with many vehicles and buildings, we want to show leadership in sustainability among our partners and the community.

We are committed to developing and implementing a five-year emissions reduction action plan to support net-zero Government Operations by 2030, including a Greener Buildings Project.

We will also make better choices for the environment when developing, maintaining, and purchasing goods and services, encouraging our suppliers to reflect the high standards we set ourselves.

Police are at the forefront in supporting our communities during and after climate-related emergencies and we must do our part to reduce the occurrences of natural disasters such as bushfires and floods.
