  • Summary Information:
    Six Regional Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committees (AJACs) will be established across the State of Victoria, with the aim of facilitating relationships between local Aboriginal communities and justice agencies. One of their key roles will be to develop and monitor Regional Aboriginal Justice Plans which will be developed within the principles and framework established under the Victorian Aboriginal Justice Agreement. Support is to be given to local communities to enhance their understanding and skills to ensure they have an active and equal role in developing their Regional Justice Plan. Each region will have a full-time executive officer to act as a key support for each Regional AJAC. Regional AJACs will include representatives from State and regional agencies, organisations and services including from Tumbukka and Binjirru Regional Councils.
