Contact the OPP

We encourage you to contact the OPP solicitor or VWAS social worker assigned to the case as a first step.

You can also contact the OPP using this online form:

    Office of Public Prosecutions
    PO Box 13085
    Melbourne VIC 8010

    03 9603 7666 (dial 99 from State Government network)


    Request reasons for a prosecution decision

    The OPP must provide victims with reasons for any decision to:

    • substantially change the charges
    • discontinue a prosecution
    • accept a plea of guilty to a lesser charge.

    Victims may also request reasons for other types of prosecution decisions.

    Witnesses and other persons with a legitimate interest in a case may also ask the DPP for the reasons behind a prosecution decision, for example:

    • Why was a case discontinued?
    • Why was a case resolved a certain way?
    • Why the DPP decided not to appeal against a sentence?

    A request for reasons may be declined in some cases. For example, if giving reasons would prejudice a court case.

    Requests for reasons can be emailed to or posted to:

    Policy and Specialised Legal Division
    Office of Public Prosecutions
    PO Box 13085
    VIC 8010
