BankVic Academy branch is now closed and will be relocating soon to Brandon Business Park

Update: 22 June 2015 

After more than 34 years' service to the Victoria Police community, BankVic has closed its Academy branch at the request of Victoria Police. This is due to a range of factors, but primarily due to heightened security concerns and the need to reclaim the floor space for Police activities.

We would like to thank all those members who took the time to complete our survey in regards to the Police Academy branch relocation. This feedback has enabled us to select an appropriate alternative premise that we believe best meets our members’ needs. The new branch will be located at the Brandon Business Park, Glen Waverley. We are at the initial stages of planning our branch fit out however we will be keeping you informed of our progress.

We encourage members to alternatively use the Monash Clayton, Carlton, World Trade Centre or City West branches in the interim, or contact us in regards to our Member Relationship Managers and Mobile Lenders who can also assist with everyday banking. We are sad to be leaving but we respect Victoria Police’s concerns.

BankVic would like to extend its sincere gratitude to all members who have frequented the Academy branch – our staff feel privileged having had the pleasure of serving Police members, Recruits and Academy staff over many years.

We understand you may like to know more or have questions about this change. You can find FAQs below or you can call us on 13 63 73 – our staff will be pleased to talk to you.
