The Victorian Interchurch Criminal Justice Taskforce has released this brochure to give a Christian perspective on current issues of punishment, imprisonment and rehabilitation, and to offer effective and just ways to reduce crime and increase community safety.

In a related development, Victorian Church leaders have written to all Members of Parliament, calling for a 'restorative justice' approach to crime and offending, with a focus on prevention of crime, support for victims of crime, diversion from prison, and rehabilitation of offenders.  Click here for a copy of the letter.

Bishop Vincent Long launched our 2014 State Election brochure on 17 September.  Our brochure highlights areas of concern to member organisations and produces material to enable dialogue with Candidates and MPs. Further information on the kit, and material from the launch, are also available.
