The Office of Public Prosecutions' (OPP) vision is to make a positive difference to the community through the justice system.


The OPP's purpose is to provide an independent prosecutions service to the people of Victoria.


The OPP's goals are to:

  • deliver high-quality prosecution and proceeds of crime services, taking advantage of innovative information technology to achieve fair outcomes effectively and efficiently
  • be responsive to victims and witnesses in the prosecution process
  • enhance OPP legal and victim support service delivery to regional areas of Victoria
  • influence and implement policy, procedure and law reform
  • deliver our legal services within a framework that supports strong governance, professional capability and staff wellbeing.


As we work towards our vision to 'make a positive difference to the community through the justice system', we reinforce and promote five core values. They are to:

  • Act with integrity –  we uphold public trust.
  • Strive for excellence – we commit to the pursuit of best practice.
  • Respect others – we treat everyone with respect.
  • Work together – we work cooperatively to reach common goals.
  • Act fairly – we promote an environment that is free from bias, favouritism or self interest.
