LG invited to get behind crime and violence prevention awards

Councils are being encouraged to nominate their most effective crime mitigation projects for the Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards.

Projects or initiatives that reduce violence and other types of crime in the community are all eligible to be nominated for the awards.

They can relate to specific groups such as rural and remote communities, women, children, youth, family, migrant, ethnic or Indigenous communities, or specific problems such as alcohol-related violence.

The annual awards recognise and reward good practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crime in Australia and are convened by the Australian Institute of Criminology.

Nominations close 11 June.
