CCTV in Australia Research Project
The Australian Institute of Criminology is currently conducting research into the use of CCTV in public places. Every local government in Australia is invited to participate in an online survey about their use of CCTV. This research is important because it will help to better inform the use of CCTV and other crime prevention initiatives in local communities.
Please contact Shann Hulme (by phone) 02 6260 9242 or (by email) firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how your council can become involved in this important national research project. Every participating council will go into a draw for a chance to receive one of two free registrations to the AIC rsquo;s upcoming Crime Prevention and Communities Conferences held at the Melbourne Convention Centre on 10-11 June 2014.
ACFT scams survey 2014
Each year the Australasian Consumer Fraud Taskforce (ACFT) gathers information on scams to help improve the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of scam offenders.
To assist in gathering that information the Australian Institute of Criminology, a taskforce member, runs an online survey each year. Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous, and you only need to complete the survey once. All responses are treated in confidence.
The survey will be open 1 January to 30 June 2014.
