Elections for TPAV delegate positions

Earlier this week, all members received an email from The Police Association to advise that elections are currently being held for all 59 TPAV Delegate positions across the state.

This is a process held every two years, in accordance with The Police Association’s Constitution.

Our Delegates perform a critical role in ensuring that our 15,000 members are actively represented and supported, particularly at the workplace level.

While the role of a TPAV Delegate is varied, at its core, it requires that they be responsive to issues arising in the workplace affecting members and to play an active and leading role in resolving them, with the guidance and support of The Police Association.

All delegates who are elected will be supported by The Police Association with training and development opportunities aimed at ensuring they are equipped with the required skills and knowledge to effectively perform their important role.

In the event that two or more members nominate for a Delegate position, a ballot process will be run between late October and late November.

Successful candidates will serve a two-year term as an Association Delegate, formally commencing in December 2017.

For further information and advice about the current Delegate election process or to find out more about what the role entails, please call Tony Walsh (TPAV Delegates & Training/Development Coordinator) on 9468 2600.

Greater PSO powers a reality

The Police Association welcomes new laws passed by the Victorian Parliament yesterday which will soon provide our Transit PSO members with an expanded range of new powers.

Under the new laws, which The Police Association had been strongly advocating for some time on behalf of members, Transit PSOs will be able to arrest a person who has breached their parole, conduct searches for illicit drugs and request names and addresses of people who witness crimes.

PSOs will also be able to respond to incidents in the vicinity of train stations they are patrolling.

We commend both sides of politics for being receptive to bringing about these positive changes. We also thank our PSO delegates and members for their efforts in bringing these issues to our attention in the first instance.
