Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton says the Victoria Police Capability Plan (2016-25) will make police “an agile, responsive, people-focused and connected organisation.”

The 12-month research project, headed by Deputy Commissioner Wendy Steendam, acknowledges that the traditional policing model has been swamped by changes to crime patterns and police must find new ways to respond to community needs.

The Capability Plan, unveiled to senior officers on Wednesday, calls for more flexible rostering, greater visible police presence, a stronger focus on victims and an increased emphasis on crime prevention.

“This will position us as an agile police force, able to respond quickly to changes in our operating environment and to connect and understand the community’s expectations of us,” Mr Ashton said.

To do so, he says, will require “rethinking the traditional operating model to meet the expected growth and changes in demand for policing”. Mr Ashton acknowledged that police need to respond to “the changing environment and patterns of offending”.

He told Fairfax Media the Capability Plan “provides a road map of where we need to go”.

The release of statewide crime figures last week showed a jump of more than 13 per cent, the latest in a steady increase with offences such as carjackings and home invasions continuing to spiral. The Police Association say first-responding officers can no longer cope with calls for help from the public and has called for a real increase of 3300 police by 2022.

At present around 2 per cent of police are assigned to night patrol duties but Mr Ashton wants rosters to reflect changes in demand.

He also said police will move away from traditional district policing to allow more resources to hit crime hot spots or blitz crime types. “A model based on crooks sticking to suburbs is out of date already,” Mr Ashton said.

The plan calls for police to focus on “accessibility, visibility, mobility and flexibility, rather than just geographic boundaries” and to deliver “proactive and preventative policing”.

Police will provide security advice for individuals and companies designed to deter offenders in a process known as “target hardening”.

They will also concentrate on persons of interest including registered sex offenders, parolees, recently released prisoners, terror suspects, repeat offenders and bushfire arsonists.

And they will return to the traditional crime deterrent of providing a visible police presence through both targeted and random patrols “that focuses on community danger, public disorder, road safety and crimes against the person and property”.

Police will conduct 100,000 road drug tests in the 2016-17 financial year.

Under proposed changes police will triage calls to the emergency Triple Zero call centre so patrols are sent to urgent cases. This will mean a police advice line will be set up to deal with non-urgent calls that do not require an immediate police response. The Capability Plan identifies a need to “prioritise decisions on deployment to demand taking into account the level of harm that is occurring or likely to result”.

At present 600 non-urgent calls a day are assigned to divisional vans and other police patrols.
