Dealing with crime and the law in rural communities: what works; what doesn’t; and what would you change?
This conference will examine the efficacy of current laws and policy relating to rural crime and the law to identify what works and what does not, where the gaps exist between the law and community expectations, and seek ways to improve policy and practice.
The conference will feature Australian and International speakers addressing key topics concerning crime in rural areas, including;
- John Nicholson SC: Equal or Unequal Opportunities within the Criminal Justice System from a Rural and Regional Perspective
- Former Magistrate Chris Bone: The view from the bench
