- Members' Lunch with Greg Davies APM, Victims of Crime Commissioner
"To ignore evil is to become accomplice to it." Martin Luther King Jnr -
The Victorian election will have Law and Order as a central focus – at least if the statements of senior Liberal Leaders at Federal and State levels and the Australian newspaper are to be believed.
Greg Davies has been at the centre of this issue for decades – as a Police Officer, as Secretary of the Police Association and as Victoria’s first Victims of Crime Commissioner.
Join us to engage with the ideas and issues that will be making headlines leading to the November 2018 election.
Greg joined the Victoria Police Force in 1977, being the third generation, after his grandfather and father, to do so. His son also joined the police force. He finished his operational policing as a senior sergeant at the Crime Prevention Office in Melbourne, after which he moved across to the Police Association.
In 2008 he took over as the Secretary (CEO) of the Police Association Ltd, steering it through a difficult pay deal for police officers and the GFC, taking the organisation from a value of $26 Million to $42 Million at the time he retired, in April 2014.
In October 2014 he was appointed as Victoria's first Victims of Crime Commissioner, the position he currently holds.
Across the course of his policing he has been awarded the Australian Police Medal, National Police Service Medal, National Medal and the Victoria Police Service Medal.
