Access to protection for children self reporting abuse risk

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Victoria Police should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Victoria Police,

In how many, and what portion, of reports by minors of abuse or neglect in their home, are those minors returned to the custody of one of more alleged perpetrator, and in what timeframes? If this statistic is unavailable, related statistics in your data holdings will suffice.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith
