Justice reform survey open for victims/survivors of crime

February 08, 2019 at 12:58 PM

From the NZFVC

A survey has been launched for victims/survivors of crime as part of the Government's Hāpaitia te Oranga Tangata – Safe and Effective Justice programme. This is the Government's cross-agency programme focused on reforming the criminal justice system.

The deadline to complete the survey is 1 March 2019.

The Hāpaitia te Oranga Tangata media release says:

"The Chief Victims Advisor, Dr Kim McGregor, wants to ensure that the needs of people who have experienced crime are at the heart of any reform of the criminal justice system. Many victims/survivors have told us they feel let down by the current system and find it difficult to navigate."

They are specifically seeking feedback from anyone who has experienced a crime or knows someone who has, and people who work to support victims/survivors. Participation in the survey is anonymous.

The survey asks questions about your experiences of the current criminal justice system, what works well and what doesn’t work well, and how it can be improved. Feedback from the survey will be summarised and inform Hāpaitia te Oranga Tangata and its advice to government.

The Strengthening the Criminal Justice System for Victims survey is available in English and Te Reo Māori.

You can also still provide general feedback about the reforms.
