About Us

The Domestic and Family Violence Unit sits within Criminal Justice Interventions, Crime Prevention Division, Department of Attorney General and Justice.

The major objective of the Domestic and Family Violence Unit is to develop and implement innovative strategies to improve the criminal justice system's response to domestic violence. This includes development and implementation of the NSW Domestic Violence Justice Strategy, management of the Domestic Violence Intervention Court Model (DVICM), and implementation of minimum standards for men's domestic violence behaviour change programs.

The unit also produces publications that aim to make the justice system more accessible to victims of domestic and family violence.
