Police and Human Rights: Submission on Victoria’s Integrity and Anti-Corruption System


The Human Rights Law Resource Centre has made a Submission to the Victorian State Services Authority’s review into the integrity and anti-corruption system which sets out the human rights framework and principles which should guide reforms to Victoria’s integrity and anti-corruption system.

The excessive use of force by police or inhumane treatment of persons in police custody undermines the integrity of a State’s operations.  It also breaches the right to life and the right to freedom from torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment (ill-treatment) which are protected by ss 9 and 10 of the Victorian Charter
