Can you help? Do you travel on public transport?

TracyA • 21 April 2021

Victoria Police are calling for international student volunteers to help with a pilot program that addresses safety on public transport.

Victoria Police’s Transit Safety Division is looking for community volunteers to take part in a follow up pilot of the PTSAFE text-based notification service currently being developed. The service allows commuters to alert police to unwanted and anti-social behaviours while traveling on public transport.

Victoria Police want to ensure the service meets the needs of our public transport users. We’d appreciate your help in creating a safer network.
