My professional and personal relationship with Bob Hastings commenced  when  he  was  the  Assistant  Commissioner  (Traffic)  in the  Victoria Police.

At that time, Bob was a lead change agent in operationalising significant road safety initiatives which had a dramatic impact on lowering serious injuries and deaths on Victoria's roads. For example, the implementation of the world's first saliva based Random Roadside Drug Testing Regime.

Bob is highly regarded by those who know him for his integrity, reliability, resilience and a capacity to build strong relationships. He is an excellent leader and manager.
