VicPol investment to improve road safety

  • Posted on Monday 1st, July 2019.

The Victorian Government backs a $3 billion investment in Victoria Police and community safety, which is delivering 3,135 new police, stronger laws, better police facilities and resources.

One of the Community Safety Statements is reported to strengthen the presence of frontline police to target significant issues including road safety.

Two new 24-hour police stations will also be built in Melbourne’s south-east corridor, with the state-of-the-art facilities in Clyde North and Narre Warren, to help increase community engagement and improve safety.

DNA powers will also become operational to help identify criminals even faster, also allowing police to take DNA samples from offenders and adults suspected of indictable crimes, without the need for a court order.

“Almost 30 per cent of calls to 'Triple Zero' are for non-urgent matters, the new Police Assistance Line and online reporting tool will free up 'Triple Zero' for people who really need it,” said Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Lisa Neville.
