About us

The Victims of Crime Commissioner promotes the recognition of victims of crime in the justice system by:

  • representing the concerns of victims in the decision-making forums of government
  • providing advice to the Attorney-General, and government departments and agencies, about improvements to the justice system to meet the needs of victims of crime.

A key component of the Commissioner's role is monitoring the compliance of justice agencies and victims' services with the principles in the Victims' Charter Act 2006 (the Victims' Charter).
