2016 Q4 - Victoria
It is my pleasure to offer this quarterly report on the initiatives that the Victoria Police Department has undertaken in the last quarter of 2016.
During this period, VicPD supported a number of community-focussed initiatives including Remembrance Day commemorations and the Island Farms Santa’s Lights Parade, which saw the participation of members of our Senior Command Team, VicPD officers and our Volunteers and Reserves.
In terms of operations, all of VicPD’s divisions continue to work together to problem-solve, engage the public, and take action to meet he needs of our citizens. We continue to follow an intelligence-led policing approach through our Strategic Operations Council, which sets out the department’s priorities for our communities.
VicPD remains engaged with our partners as we make meaningful and lasting progress on issues that matter to the citizens of Victoria, including homelessness and the vibrancy of our downtown area. Through continued two-way dialogue and active engagement with individuals, groups, and businesses in our community, we look forward to continuing to provide the policing services that our citizens expect and deserve.
