Victoria Police was established in 1853 and provides policing services to the Victorian community 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Their role is to provide a safe, secure and orderly society by serving the community and upholding the law.
Victoria Police is a large organisation employing over 22,000 people, including police officers, Victorian Public Servants, Protective Services Officers and Police Custody Officers.
Their services include:
- responding to calls for assistance in matters of personal and public safety, emergencies and serious incidents
- preventing crime through a range of proactive community safety programs
- detecting and investigating offences, and bringing to justice those responsible for committing them
- supporting the judicial process to achieve efficient and effective court case management, providing safe custody for alleged offenders, supporting victims and ensuring fair and equitable treatment of victims and offenders
- promoting safe road-user behaviour
The nature of policing, meeting community expectations and continuously striving to respond to changing crime patterns and significant emergencies, has seen increased demands on our employees. Victoria Police recognises the impact that these demands and pressures can have on our employee’s mental health and are committed to protecting the wellbeing of all employees.
