It's time for real police accountability

It's time for real police accountability

The avalanche of news stories from people who have experienced police abuse provides a shocking glimpse into the failings of Victoria’s police complaints system.

As outrage grows about how police in Victoria can seemingly abuse human rights with such impunity, we need to ensure that this outrage results in concrete, tangible legislative reforms. 

It's time for the Victorian Government to ensure an independent body investigates all complaints of serious police misconduct.  

What would that look like? Well, the model currently being considered by the parliamentary IBAC Committee is effective, prompt, victim centred, transparent and independent.

This is something Aboriginal, community, legal and human rights groups have been urging for over 40 years. We are closer than ever to seeing this happen in Victoria and we need your help.

A coalition of groups have been working tirelessly over many years to get us to this point. This week we have seen a huge range of groups boost our call for independent investigations. 

It is timely and critical support.  But we have lots of work ahead of us to see this through parliament.

To back up this work you can donate to our Police Accountability Project Appeal.
