Annotation: The 23rd annual reports of the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) and the Australian Criminology Research Council (CRC) for the period ending June 30, 1995 focus on goals and accomplishments and contain recommendations for change and improvement.
Abstract: In 1995, the AIC began with a budget reduction of $1.5 million and fewer staff. With the assignment of a new director, the AIC began to play a more policy-relevant role and a revised mission was adopted: to provide quality information and conduct objective policy-oriented research in order to inform government decisions affecting criminal justice and crime prevention. Developments and activities in 1995 signaled the transformation of the AIC from an essentially academic organization to one focused on policy. The complex nature of policy issues in the changing world of criminal justice is discussed. A corporate overview of the AIC is presented, and a description of the AIC's three groups (Research, Information Services, and Administrative Services) is provided. Extensive supplemental information on the AIC's personnel, activities, and publications is contained in three appendixes. The CRC annual report basically describes the organization's research activities related to violence, adolescent socialization processes, police firearms, criminal victimization, gay killings, child abuse, aborigines, domestic violence prevention, prostitution law reform, juvenile justice, child molestation, sexual abuse, postrelease experiences of imprisoned mothers, sentencing, and crime prevention.
