Where we are up to

Victoria Police have commenced work to improve the referral rate and referral pathways available via the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service (VALS) to self-identified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Victoria Police E-referrals (VPeR) is a consent based, non-crisis, non-family violence referral system for support services such as drug and alcohol, mental health, road trauma, suicide and financial support. All appropriate referrals are currently triaged through VALS to Aboriginal support services.
