Where we are up to

The best justice outcomes for Aboriginal people, are determined by Aboriginal people. This sentiment is reflected in the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS) Statement of Direction (External link) (2019-2023). One of the overall outcomes, seeks to build a fair and accessible justice system for Aboriginal people. DJCS has reorganised itself to deliver on this ambition.

In 2019, a dedicated Aboriginal Justice division was established to fortify the mandate to do better for community. This ambition guides the work of every DJCS employee.
