We congratulate the Commission on their report. It is comprehensive, very practical and has the potential to significantly change the lives of children and young people in Victoria.

In February 2016 the Victorian parliament will debate reforms to the Independent Broad -based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) to fight corruption.
We welcome changes that will strengthen the ability of IBAC to investigate corrupt public servants, politicians and judiciary and strengthen Victoria’s integrity system with increased powers and scope for the Auditor-General and the Ombudsman.
Police charged over assault of teenagers
Impressive action by a father of one of the teens. Most young people who experience serious mistreatment by police do not challenge it or lodge a complaint . This is because such complaints are dealt with internally by Victoria Police.
