Set performance measures for policing of family violence at regional levels

Recommendation:
048
Status:
Implemented

Who is leading the change

  • Victoria Police

Victoria Police’s Family Violence Command set performance measures for policing of family violence at regional levels, taking into account demand for family violence policing at police service area and divisional levels. Regional assistant commissioners should report to the Chief Commissioner of Police and Executive Command through the Family Violence Command against these performance measures.

  • Recommendations 46, 47 and 48 make up the Strategy and Performance Work package and will be progressed together as a stream of related work. This stream will see the development of new Violence against Women and Children Strategy, a new reporting framework and new measures to track police performance against the strategy.

    Victoria Police developed a new strategy to replace the Violence Against Women and Children Strategy. This work clarifies Victoria Police's vision, strategic objectives, key actions and roles and responsibilities in tackling family violence.

    The Strategy will be underpinned by a new performance measurement framework.

  • Victoria Police launched its new strategy, Policing Harm, Upholding the Right: Victoria Police Strategy for Family Violence, Sexual Offences and Child Abuse 2018-2023, for responding to family violence, sexual offending and child abuse incorporating a performance management and reporting framework in December 2017 (recommendations 46 and 47).

    There is a clear link between the objectives in the Strategy and the outcomes to be measured in the framework.

    Following the finalisation of the performance measures framework, Victoria Police is working to embed the performance management framework across the organisation.

    Regional level performance measures will support the implementation of new Family Violence Investigation Units that commenced in July 2018.

  • Implemented.
