COVID-19, criminal activity and law enforcement
The submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement’s inquiry into criminal activity and law enforcement during the COVID-19 pandemic was prepared by the Law Council of Australia.
The Law Council acknowledges the contributions of the Victorian Bar and its Criminal Bar Association in the preparation of this submission. The measures introduced across all jurisdictions in response to the pandemic have affected many areas of public and private life, and the operation of the criminal justice system has been disrupted in a significant way.
