Welfare Officers

Welfare Officers have many years of frontline policing experience.  They know the job, and the pressures and challenges it can bring.  They provide an important element of policing knowledge and connection to the range of services at Health, Welfare and Safety.

These dedicated officers ‘check in’ on the welfare of employees who are away from work on sick leave and also those who attend a critical incident.  They are there for a chat and an empathetic ear.  They can also refer on to services and other support as needed, like injury management and rehabilitation; psychological support services; information and advice about work and non-work related claims; corporate health and wellbeing programs and events; and chaplains.


The aim is to make sure the wellbeing of all employees is prioritised and confirmed, and no-one falls through the gaps. 


This support complements the contact and support provided by local management.
