Where we are up to
In 2018, the Aboriginal Portfolio Reference Group (APRG) was re-established as the overarching advisory group for embedding a Self-Determination Framework in Victoria Police.
The APRG governance structure provides a mechanism for:
- ensuring Aboriginal community leadership and decision-making in development, and delivery of programs that affect the community
- advising on inclusive policy, processes, and practices for strengthening partnerships with the Aboriginal community,
- addressing the barriers to reducing over-representation.
This underpins Self-Determination principles and involvement of community in decision-making processes.
The Aboriginal Portfolio Reference Group (APRG) is co-chaired by Assistant Commissioner Russell Barrett and Chris Harrison.
