About the Speaker

Former Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police, Ms. Nixon was appointed in February 2009 to chair the Victorian Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Authority and tasked with the oversight and coordination of the largest recovery and rebuilding program Victoria has ever faced. Under Christine’s leadership, the Authority worked with communities, businesses, charities, local councils and other government departments to help people rebuild their lives and communities.

 

Prior to joining the Authority, Christine was the 19th Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police, the first woman to become a police commissioner in Australia. She led 14,000 staff, operating across more than 500 locations and oversaw an annual budget of $1.7 billion. Nixon was a police officer for over thirty years and prior to becoming Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police she had an extensive career in the New South Wales Police Force, attaining the rank of Assistant Commissioner.

 

Nixon's performance as Chief Commissioner, in a sometimes controversial career where she challenged the institution to improve, is probably best assessed by a credible and academically rigorous study produced on behalf of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) by the Australian Productivity Commission - overall high levels of community satisfaction and support for Victoria Police. Personally, Nixon enjoys very high levels of public support.
