The MGFVPC has been commissioned by Victoria Police (VP) Family Violence Command (FVC) to examine the development and implementation of the Specialist Investigators Support Unit (SISU)’s psychological services designed to support positive outcomes for the mental health and wellbeing of VP employees who work on themes of family violence, sexual offending and child abuse and are located in FVIUs, SOCITs and a range of related areas. The overall aim of the research is to provide data on the development and implementation of the SISU’s services and to develop an evaluation framework that will assist the SISU to meet its strategic goals as outlined in ‘Policing Harm, Upholding the Right’.
