The Victims of Crime Commissioner (VoCC) is an independent statutory officer, appointed by the Governor in Council.
The VoCC reports to and advises the Attorney-General about systemic victims of crime matters.
The VoCC has two full-time staff members – an Executive Assistant and a Senior Research and Policy Adviser.
The VoCC is also a member of the Victims of Crime Consultative Committee, which is made up of a Chairperson and representatives of the judiciary, the Office of Public Prosecutions, the Adult Parole Board, Victoria Police and victims service agencies. Most importantly, there are seven victims’ representatives on the Committee that represent the interests of victims of crime.
The Attorney-General may also appoint additional members to the Victims of Crime Consultative Committee.
