Position Details

  • VPSG-4  range $79,955 - $90,716 p.a. + super + leave loading*
  • One (1) full time, fixed term position until 30 June 2019.
  • Working within the BlueConnect Program, located at the Victoria Police Centre, 637 Flinders Street, Docklands, 3008**


Project Background

The BlueConnect Program is overseeing the modernisation of systems and technology within Victoria Police so we can better serve the community. BlueConnect is changing the way we collect, manage and access information, as well as connect with the community by supporting an agile and responsive police service.  The body worn camera project is a key project within the BlueConnect Program.

In April 2016 the Victorian Government allocated funding for body worn cameras as part of the Public Safety Package.  This included new mobile technology and body-worn cameras to give police the tools they need to keep the community safe, and improve responses to family violence incidents.

In March 2016 the Royal Commission into Family Violence recommended (#58) that Victoria Police conduct a trial into the use of body worn cameras to record victims' statements to be used as evidence in court (evidence in chief).  The trial will be supported by any necessary legislative amendment to ensure the admissibility of evidence collected in criminal and civil proceedings.

By capturing audio and video of the scene and interactions with victims and perpetrators, BWCs will support better and more efficient justice outcomes (in both criminal and civil jurisdictions); and reduced trauma for victims of crime.
