Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards

Recognising that with the current COVID-19 pandemic, police, NGO and community group resources are stretched, the Australian Institute of Criminology, in consultation with the ACVPA Board, has made the decision that the Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards will not be run in 2020.

Applications for the 2021 awards will be opened in May 2021.

The annual Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards (ACVPA) recognise and reward programs that reduce crime and violence in Australia. The awards encourage public initiatives, and assist governments in identifying and developing practical projects which will reduce violence and other types of crime in the community.

Any government agency, not-for-profit organisation or individual person making a significant contribution to a project in Australia can be nominated for an award. Projects may address 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.
