Aboriginal community justice groups were representative groups of Aboriginal people who came together to examine the crime and offending problems in their communities and develop ways to address these issues. The groups worked with different parts of the criminal justice system to make sure the system worked better for people in their communities in New South Wales (NSW).
Aboriginal community justice groups were based on the idea that local Aboriginal people know their own communities and problems. Therefore, the groups could solve local community problems better by developing local community solutions.
