The National Criminal Justice Research Data Network (NCJRDN)
The National Criminal Justice Research Data Network (NCJRDN) project provides a web based data repository that holds criminal justice data currently maintained by data custodians across Australia. There is growing demand for quantitative research in the criminal justice sector where government agencies are increasingly calling on researchers and criminologists to provide the evidence base to enable efficient service provision and for the development of effective crime prevention/reduction strategies.
The NCJRDN provides a web-based service through which researchers can obtain information about, and access to, an array of criminal justice research datasets and data analysis tools. This includes criminal justice data which is already routinely collected from administrative datasets.
This collection includes data from studies conducted by the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC), and criminology researchers around Australia.

Policing and Security: the ARC Centre for Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS)
The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS) was established by the ARC in 2007 to boost policing and security research capacity in Australia amid the growing complexity and internationalisation of transnational crime in the post 9/11 environment.
Legal institutions and processes
The Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet) is a research group within the College of Asia and Pacific at the Australian National University. It is also a network of institutions, practitioners and academics involved in exploring and understanding critical domains of regulation. This collection provides access to data from studies conducted by members of RegNet on legal institutions, regulatory systems and public administration.
