The ACJRD, a Carmichael resident organisation, are an organisation which seeks to promote reform, development and effective operation of the criminal justice system. They do so primarily by ‘providing a forum where experienced personnel can discuss ways of working in an informal setting’, as well as by ‘promoting study and research in the field of criminal justice and by promoting the highest standards of practice by professionals associated with criminal justice’.
