Recognising and rewarding good practice in crime prevention

Nominations are now open for the 2017 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards. These awards recognise and reward good practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crime in Australia.

The awards are open to projects of all sizes, including smaller initiatives involving local community groups.

Recent awards went to winners as diverse as a boxing and fitness program for vulnerable Indigenous children, support and services for accused people on bail, and a program that reduces family violence within culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

The awards are a joint initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments, coordinated by the Australian Institute of Criminology and co-sponsored by the Law, Crime and Community Safety Council.

Nominations close on 19 May 2017. To apply for this year’s awards visit
