StopWatchVic was a project that monitored the stop and search receipting trials that were held in Moonee Valley or Greater Dandenong , Mildura or Boroondara over 2015.

For an update and more information about Victoria Police’s commitment to end racial profiling please see here.

A police officer or Protective Service Officer (PSO) should have provided you with a receipt if you were stopped in the Moonee Valley, Greater Dandenong, Mildura or Boroondara areas in 2015.

Contact us if you want to find out more about stop and search receipting and the work to measure and prevent racial profiling in Victoria.

StopWatchVic provided legal education to young community members within the trial zones of the Victoria Police receipting trials, to increase understanding of and engagement with the pilots, and to monitor and report upon the outcomes.

StopWatchVic would like to thank staff of the Flemington Kensington Community Legal Centre and Springvale Monash Legal Service and the Victoria Law Foundation for their support for this important project.
