Police Minister Lisa Neville and Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton released the government’s second Community Safety Statement and announced a $115million package to be funded in the 2018-19 Victorian Budget.

The new statement recommits the government and Victoria Police to a shared community safety vision, including $24million for new online investigators and cyber technology to target organised crime online, money laundering, drug and firearm distribution and child exploitation; and a $25million crime prevention package to support communities, Neighbourhood Watch, Crime Stoppers and the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council.
