African Australian Community Taskforce

African Australian Community Taskforce (AACTF) was established from January 2018 – June 2019 to work closely with Victoria Police to address African Australian youth offending and antisocial behaviour. Victoria Police’s Priority Communities Division provided secretariat and administrative support to the AACTF during this period and it became apparent that a long-term entity was required for the AACTF to adequately deliver the support needed for the broader African Australian communities in Victoria on an ongoing basis. Right Lane and ACIL Allen worked closely with representatives from AACTF executive team, Victoria Police, Department of Justice and Community Safety, Multicultural Affairs and Social Cohesion, Department of Premier and Cabinet Victoria and other stakeholders to develop a business case for the transition of the AACTF to a long-term independent entity that supports the needs of the broader African communities in Victoria.
