​Department of Attorney General and Justice Annual Report 2011-12

This reporting year has been one of change and consolidation for the Department of Attorney General and Justice. It has seen us undertake major reform to the way we do business to bring the three functional areas of the Department – the Attorney General’s Division, Corrective Services NSW and Juvenile Justice NSW – into a cohesive, single Department that provides effective and innovative services right across the justice sector. The reforms to create a truly integrated entity are a work in progress. As you read this report you will note that the chapter for each division reflects the current separation, but also demonstrates the opportunities that are being progressed to unify the department.

Our Department is committed to delivering high quality services with a client-centred focus. Through strengthening working relationships across the Department and with our cluster agencies, we are working toward seamless service provision that is responsive to current issues in the justice sector and is well placed to understand and address the needs of individuals.

The work we do is intrinsically linked to the Government’s ten-year plan for NSW, NSW 2021. The Department is the lead agency for the NSW 2021 goals of Improving community confidence in the justice system and Preventing and reducing the level of re-offending. We are a key partner with the NSW Police Force in achieving the goal of Preventing and reducing the level of crime in NSW. Our commitment to the goals of the NSW 2021 plan is reflected in our Department’s vision of a just and safe society for the people of NSW and in the strategic directions that inform our work.
