Project Officer

Road Policing Enforcement Division (RPED) and the Traffic Camera Office (TCO) maintain traffic camera availability at a sufficient level to dramatically increase the likelihood of speed and red light offence detection. This deters dangerous road behaviour and establishes a base for long term modification in driver behaviour and attitude, thus reducing the number and severity of road traffic collisions.

External stakeholders and partners include the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS), Serco, VicRoads, and other road safety partners.
