In NSW there are around 120 Domestic Liaison Officers (DVLOs). These Officers work tirelessly to assist victims of domestic violence, in particular children at risk. The role of the DVLO is a very busy and extremely stressful role, with NSW Police attending to over 145,000 reported DV incidents last year.
Over the last couple of years there have been many changes brought forward by NSW Police and the Government to reduce domestic violence across NSW. This has lead to the DVLO’s workload to doubled. Every two years the NSW Police Force puts on a Conference for all the DVLO’s across the State to provide further knowledge to support their roles and also to acknowledge their hard work.
