The Andrews Labor Government has officially appointed Neville Taylor APM as the Road Safety Camera Commissioner (RSCC) for the next three years.

Mr Taylor has been Acting Road Safety Camera Commissioner since December 2021 and has extensive road safety knowledge from more than 40 years of service with Victoria Police.

While at Victoria Police, he led road policing operations in Victoria and held various management and executive roles, including Acting Assistant Commissioner for Road Policing Command.

Passionate about road safety and protecting the Victorian community, Mr Taylor has a high level of expertise in criminal justice and the implementation of the safe systems model approach within road safety.

He is focused on working towards the target set out in the Victorian Road Safety Strategy 2021–2030 to halve road deaths and reduce serious injuries by 2030.

Mr Taylor was awarded an Australian Police Medal in 2019 and is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

He is a Visiting Fellow with the Australian Institute of Police Management and a sessional member of the Police Registration and Services Board.

Mr Taylor takes on the permanent role after the departure of Stephen Leane APM, who has left a strong legacy from his time as RSCC and has greatly improved the governance and accountability of road safety partners and camera stakeholders.
