Where we are up to
In July 2019, an Aboriginal, data specialist was appointed by the Crime Statistics Agency. The data specialist provides assistance to Local and Regional Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committees, the Aboriginal Justice Forum, Dhelk Dja Regional Action Groups and the Dhelk Dja Partnership Forum.
The Crime Statistics Agency is committed to continuing to work with these groups to understand their current and future data needs, to assist them with accessing relevant data, as well as to:
- develop minimum data set for AJA programs
- reduce the rate of unknowns in Victoria Police Standard Indigenous Question response data
- improve collection and reporting of diversions data
- improve collection and reporting of Aboriginal family violence data.
