National Committee on Violence established

1987 National Committee on Violence

The National Committee on Violence was established as the result of a joint agreement between the Prime Minister, the State Premiers and the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory at a meeting held in December 1987. The Committee’s terms of reference required it to examine a number of issues, including the contemporary state of violent crime in Australia, and related social, economic, psychological and environmental aspects.
