The Police Registration and Services Board (PRSB) is an independent statutory body established by the Victoria Police Act 2013 (External link). There are three Divisions with the following functions.

  • Registration Division: registers people on the Police Profession Register, maintains the Register and advises on proposed appointments to Victoria Police.
  • Professional Standards Division: advises the Chief Commissioner about competency and practice standards, educational courses and supervised training arrangements; supports and promotes the continuing education and professional development of police officers and reservists and protective services officers.
  • Review Division: performs tribunal functions relating to members of Victoria Police. It conducts independent reviews of discipline decisions (including dismissals) and appeals of decisions to promote or transfer and other specified employment-related decisions.

The PRSB advises the Minister and Chief Commissioner about matters relating its functions and can inquire into and report on any matter referred to it by the Chief Commissioner or the Minister.
