2018 ACVPA award winners, AIC Director Mike Phelan, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC, Assistant Minister of Home Affairs, and AIC Deputy Director Dr Rick Brown.
The annual Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards (ACVPA) recognise and reward good practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crime in Australia. The awards encourage public initiatives, and assist governments in identifying and developing practical projects which will reduce violence and other types of crime in the community.
Any government agency, not-for-profit organisation or individual person making a significant contribution to a project in Australia can be nominated for an award. Projects may address 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.
This year twelve programs were recognised as winners.
Last year eleven programs were recognised as winners.
