Carlton Crest Hotel, Melbourne
18 June 1998 - 19 June 1998


Significant numbers of businesses report that they are victims of crime. Many do not report crimes against them. As business creates Australia's wealth and employment opportunities, crime prevention is of great importance for this sector of the community.

Crimes against business cost billions of dollars per annum. The nature of crimes against business is changing rapidly. This conference examines patterns of crime in key business sectors (retail, finance, manufacturing, construction, transport and hospitality) and examines processes, partnerships and solutions to limit and control crime against business.
