Figure 1 illustrates the AIC’s structure during 2018–19. The AIC’s research and information services reported through the Deputy Director to the AIC Director.
In 2018–19, the AIC’s research teams were aligned with six priority themes:
- criminal justice responses to family and domestic violence;
- child exploitation material;
- Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system;
- youth crime;
- transnational serious and organised crime; and
- illicit drugs.
Another team focused on crime and justice statistical monitoring.
In addition, the AIC’s small grants management team administered the Criminology Research Grants (CRG) and the Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards (ACVPA).
