Where we are up to

The Aboriginal Portfolio Reference Group (APRG) was re-established as the overarching governance structure for embedding self-determination across Victoria Police. It is co-chaired by Assistant Commissioner Russell Barrett and Aunty Marion Hansen.

The purpose of the APRG is to ensure policies and programs that affect Aboriginal Victorians are informed by Aboriginal experiences and are designed to meet the needs of the Victorian Aboriginal community. Victoria Police are in the process of working with the regions to establish localised structures to ensure local initiatives meet the needs of local communities.
