Just Futures 2012-2015
The Queensland Government is committed to reducing the numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders entering the criminal justice system.
As part of this commitment, the Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG) was one of several Queensland Government agencies involved in the development of Just Futures 2012-2015.
Queensland Government agencies will work together under Just Futures 2012-2015 to respond to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities, working towards improving health, education, housing and employment.
Just Futures 2012-2015 provides a number of initiatives to address the underlying causes of Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system, and to prevent where possible, contact with the criminal justice system in the first instance.
DJAG has a number of initiatives contained in Just Futures that are already operational in Indigenous communities.
