CCTV in Australia Research Project May 2014

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) 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’s upcoming Crime Prevention and Communities Conferences held at the Melbourne Convention Centre on 10-11 June 2014.
