VCAT has a number of security measures to ensure the people who enter our buildings feel safe.

We have airport-style security scanning at the entrance to our 55 King Street and 414 La Trobe Street venues, as well as some suburban and regional venues.  

Most of our venues have security officers present throughout the day, including at our CBD venues.

We have duress alarms in all hearing rooms. When a member presses the alarm, security officers are called to the hearing room immediately.

We may be able to arrange extra security at a hearing or arrange for you to appear via remote witness facility if a person has:

  • been charged with offences against you
  • an intervention order against them
  • acted aggressively in a previous hearing.

If you have concerns about security, call us on 1300 01 8228 to discuss your situation, or complete our security request form.
