Sheriff's Aboriginal Liaison Officer positions established
In 2010, the Infringement Management & Enforcement Services (now Fines Victoria) established a Sheriff's Aboriginal Liaison Officer (SALO) position located in Mildura. The SALO role was established to provide practical support and assistance to Aboriginal community members seeking to address their outstanding infringement obligations.
The role is also responsible for building and fostering links and to enhance communication and interaction between the Sheriff’s Office and local Aboriginal communities to resolve issues and promote awareness of the role of Sheriff’s Officers within local Aboriginal communities.
SALOs now operate across the state in Grampians, Loddon Mallee, Hume, South, East, and North West Metro.
