Noticed this message from the ANCD:
“The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) is undertaking a review of the National Community Crime Prevention Programme (NCCPP). The NCCPP is a $64 million grants programme that provides funding for grass roots projects designed to enhance community safety and crime prevention by preventing or reducing crime and antisocial behaviour, improving community safety and security, and reducing the fear of crime. More information about the programme and the projects that have been funded is available at www.crimeprevention.gov.au .
The purpose of this review is to examine the appropriateness and effectiveness of the NCCPP and to help inform government decisions regarding the direction of future investment in crime prevention at an Australian Government level. As part of this process, an online survey has been developed. The AIC invites anyone who has worked or is interested in crime prevention, had exposure to the work of the NCCPP or has views about how the programme might be improved to participate in the review and to complete the survey. Knowledge of the programme itself is not required.
The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and is entirely confidential. The deadline for submissions is 5pm (EST) Friday 17 August.

If you have any questions about this survey or the review in general, please contact Anthony Morgan on (02) 6260 9255 or email@example.com”
Any survey is only as good as its sample population, so if like me you weren’t really aware of the NCCPP, then it may be worthwhile telling them so.
