Crime in the 21st century is no longer a local issue.

Many elements of crime in Australia are increasingly linked across state/territory borders and to international criminal activities.

While Australia is more secure than many countries, the changing trends in crime present new threats and challenges.

These trends, threats and challenges will be examined in a two day Australian Institute of Criminology conference beginning today.

Speakers include Commissioner Mick Keelty from the Australian Federal Police, Dr Jay Albanese from the National Institute of Justice in Washington, Professor John Braithwaite from the Australian National University, Dr Don Weatherburn, Director, NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, Margaret Cunneen from NSW Department of Public Prosecutions, Neil Jensen, Director of AUSTRAC; Robert Cornall, Secretary, Australian Government Attorney-General's Department and Dr Toni Makkai, Director of the Australian Institute of Criminology.

Additional details, including a conference program are available on the AIC's website.
