Are you a part of a program that is helping to prevent crime and violence in Australia, something like Neighbourhood Watch SA perhaps?
If it's a yes, the Australian Institute of Criminology wants to hear from you!
Nominations for the 2022 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards are now open and the Award Board is looking for exceptional programs that are working hard to make their community safer.
Any government agency, not-for-profit organisation or individual person making a significant contribution to a project in Australia can be nominated for an Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Award.
Last year, 12 projects were recognised for their contribution to the prevention of crime and violence in Australian communities.
Nominations are open to projects of all sizes, including smaller initiatives involving local community groups.
Projects can relate to 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.
Visit www.aic.gov.au/acvpa for more information on how to nominate, the judging criteria and the selection process or to submit your nomination today.
Make sure you submit your completed nomination form online by 4.30 pm on Tuesday, 14 June 2022.
