In the second half of 2013, the Victorian public will be able to take part in a Victoria Police review that will examine policy on ‘field contact’ person checks and its cross-cultural training system.
This review provides an opportunity for police to implement training, policy and practice reforms to prevent racial bias and discrimination when dealing with Victoria’s diverse communities.
This important forum will provide insights into the nature, extent and impacts of racial profiling and the steps we can take to end the practice.
This event is free.
Light refreshments will be available
