Rotary Theme

Acting Inspector Peter Bitton

Victorian Police Leaders Mentor Program

As part of this year’s Vic Pol LMP Peter has teamed up with Rotary, North Melbourne Football Club and Basketball Victoria to deliver a careers and sports program for youth in Wyndham. The aim of the project is to give participants an opportunity to gain part-time employment and affiliation with a local sporting club. The project’s theme is Social Cohesion.

Peter is Acting Inspector of the Wyndham Police Service Area, based at Werribee Police Station. He joined the VPLMP in September 2016.

He has been a member of Vic Pol for 24 years with a broad experience in both country and metropolitan areas. He has spent the majority of his time as a detective investigating illicit drug crime, armed robberies and other serious crimes.  Peter is married, a father of two and lives in the same area where he works. Although some see this as a negative he believes it is integral in his determination to make Wyndham a safe place to live.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
