Victoria Police values the different attributes, life experiences, capabilities and skills that each employee brings to the organisation. We value the
diversity of our employees and facilitate an environment which is inclusive and safe from discrimination, sexual harassment, victimisation and bullying.
In 2013, Victoria Police released its Equity and Diversity Plan (2013–2015). It is recognised that through greater workforce diversity and inclusion, we
will increase our ability to provide better services to the community and improve employee engagement and productivity.
Victoria Police has made a strong commitment to increasing representation of women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and people from Culturally and
Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds (CALD). In addition, Victoria Police will continue to support a broad range of diverse groups including lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community, people with disabilities and religious and spiritually diverse groups. For information on the Victoria Police Academy LGBTI Student Support Program download the flyer

better service to the community'.
