Here are the links to the articles on the Chief Commissioner of Police. Notice all the references to child abuse issues:
I still haven't located one particular newspaper article discussing the reasons for Overland's resignation where the words "child abuse" were used, but I will continue to look.
In the above article note the statement re: the Office of Police Integrity investigation into crime statistic fudging:
"What it did find was inherent flaws in police methodology, including uncertainty about whether a crime should be recorded when it's reported to police or when it enters the database; that affects the accuracy of police response times."
In conversation with Steven, he told me that over the previous two years he continually reported breaches of the WWC laws to the police until they literally ran into the thousands of reported crimes and not one ever made the statistics.
The following is the official state government announcement regarding the resignation of Chief Commissioner Overland.
The following is from Victoria's No. 1 news radio station.
The above radio discussion provides a clue.
It says in quoting Overland:
"Overland claimed today that the damning Ombudsman’s report - blaming him for releasing dodgy crime figures favouring the Labor Government before last year’s state election – was not ‘the straw that’s broken the camel’s back’. What? Did he intend to resign today anyway?"
Enough of that.
A couple of people have stated that they emailed Steven but didn't get a reply. According to Steven, he didn't receive any such emails and if he had received them they would have been answered. Here's the link for his personal website that he provided. He'd like to hear from you:

Now Steven has a Working with Children Check web site where you can find out what does or does not constitute "working with children."
Steven said he put a lot of time and effort into setting up this site to assist everyone in understanding the Working with Children laws. He did not provide specifics in relation to the laws and their application within "religious organizations" as such discussions he'll leave for courtroom arguments. Here's more information for clarification:
