Community harmony- Attributed to Acting Chief Commissioner Tim Cartwright

hqdefaultAll of us have the right to worship and practice our faith. The strength of our multiculturalism

and faith diversity has provided a strong foundation to face challenges in a positive and

peaceful way.

The security of the Victorian community is everyone’s responsibility and we are asking and

encouraging all faith communities to work with us to keep Victoria safe.

At a local level, we are asking the leaders of our faith groupings to encourage and remind

their communities that:

 suspicious activities should be reported to the National Security Hotline on 1800 123

400 or Triple Zero (000);

 any acts of religious or racial vilification should be reported immediately to Triple Zero

(000); and

 liaison with local police is encouraged to strengthen safety and community

connections.

Faith leaders also have a role to encourage community members to pursue their values and

beliefs while simultaneously responding and reporting discrimination or other illegal activity.
