Christine Nixon

Christine is the popular and highly respected former Victorian police chief known for her integrity and commitment to reform.

The first woman to become a police commissioner in Australia (and the first to famously march in uniform during Melbourne's gay and lesbian 'Pride March'), Christine left that role in April 2009 to take up a position as head of the Victorian Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Authority, which is working to oversee recovery and rebuilding in the Victorian communities that were affected by bushfire in February 2009.
