Police chief Graham Ashton admits women are given preferential treatment when applying to join the force.

The commissioner told 3AW Mornings Victoria Police was “trying to get more women into the organisation” and aimed for a 50-50 split between male and female staff.

He said because there was currently more men in the force, women often had their applications fast-tracked.

“Women can find it a faster process than the men,” Mr Ashton said.

The police chief was on 3AW Mornings addressing the latest audit into the damning 2015 report from the Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission which revealed a culture of sexual harassment.
