Victorian Public Sector Newsletter

Welcome to the latest issue of our Victorian Public Sector Newsletter

In this edition, landmark reforms will strengthen Victoria Police’s management of informants, establishing clear independent oversight of police to restore public confidence in the justice system and protect informants when they are used. The Human Source ManagementBill 2022 will deliver on 25 of the recommendations from the Royal Commission into the Management of Police Informants to ensure the events investigated by the Commission never happen again.

Meanwhile, the first Meeting of Attorneys-General under the new Commonwealth Government has agreed on collective action to address family, domestic, and sexual violence. The Meeting endorsed a Consultation Draft of National Principles to Address Coercive Control – the pattern of abusive behaviour designed to create power and dominance over another person or persons.

The newsletter also includes our usual round-up of practice notes, cases and legislation.
