Victoria Police, in association with Rotary Districts across the state and the business community have established a successful partnership to deliver the Victoria Police Leaders Mentoring Program. It is a structured 12 month development program that partners a Police mentee with a business or Rotary mentor in order to further develop the Police members’ leadership skills relevant to their role in the Force.
Rotarians have a great breadth and depth of knowledge in various professional fields along with life experiences and are often available to take on mentoring roles in their broader communities. Rotarians interested in assisting as mentors are encouraged to contact the Vocational Service Committee.
