The Domestic Violence Justice Strategy
The NSW Domestic Violence Justice Strategy (the Strategy) is an operational framework that outlines the approaches and standards justice agencies in NSW will adopt to improve the criminal justice system’s response to domestic violence. Its objectives are to make victims safer, hold perpetrators accountable and prevent domestic violence from reoccurring.
The strategy commits all justice agencies and victims support services to work together to provide an effective and integrated response. It sets out six justice outcomes agencies will aspire to achieve to ensure victims and perpetrators experience high standards of service across the NSW justice system.
The Strategy also identifies areas where reform is needed to ensure effective implementation. These key areas will be addressed through research, and policy and legislative reform throughout its term.
