Hello, I’m Janine Lee, Founder & CEO of Domestic Violence Business Solutions Pty Ltd.
With 24+ year’s experience working with victims and perpetrators to save lives and make a difference for at risk individuals, children and their families, I am extremely passionate about saving lives, while simultaneously helping organisations thrive.
My career began in 1994 with the New Zealand Police as a sworn officer.
Working in a variety of roles and ranks, my passion for protecting victims from serious harm and even death led to serious crime investigations as a Detective in 2004. I quickly moved to leadership positions, training teams of investigators and leading high profile criminal investigations with a high success rate across New Zealand.
In 2015 I was honoured to be selected to work on the New Zealand Police National Family Violence Team at Police National Headquarters, providing leadership, mentorship, direction and guidance to staff and external stakeholders at national, district and service levels.
Upon the release of acknowledgement of domestic violence through sources such as the Royal Commission into Family Violence in Australia, I packed up my belongings and moved permanently to Australia in early 2018, recognising I could make an even bigger difference here.
Now working on a national level, I am so passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise with Australian organisations to create better businesses and safer workplaces.
The only way forward to tackling this massive issue is through effective solutions that target the roots of violence at its core, keep victims safe, and provide employers with the knowledge and tools to significantly reduce costs within the workplace.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how we can work together to create a customised solution for your organisation.
