Careers and Capabilities: Real Stories of Career Mobility in Victoria Police is the outcome of our latest project seeking to understand the value to Victoria Police of employing people with work experience from other organisations and sectors. Exploring the lived-experience of some of this first group of Registrants who have returned to work at Victoria Police has helped understand how the registration system is working thus far. We also sought to understand the experience of those police officers who joined Victoria Police after first following other fascinating and diverse career paths.
Semi-structured interviews were conducted with Victoria Police officers to explore their capabilities and networks and how they used these to benefit their work with Victoria Police. We asked how their careers had influenced their ideas about workplace cultures, systems and practices and about the experience of working with Victoria Police. 13 members have had their stories published.
