About us

From 1 July 2019, the Department of Family & Community Services and Department of Justice have merged to become the Department of Family & Community Services and Justice. The Departments already share a common purpose across many areas of their work, particularly when it comes to improving outcomes for children and young people, Aboriginal people, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people experiencing domestic and family violence, victims of sexual assault, juvenile offenders, people at high risk of reoffending, and people experiencing homelessness.

Working together for stronger communities means we can continue to deliver our services with a more unified and collaborative approach. This means a greater focus on prevention and early intervention, faster responses, more seamless operations, less duplication of effort and better outcomes.

The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics & Research is a statistical and research agency within the Department of Family & Community Services and Justice whose role is to analyse and report on trends and patterns in the criminal justice system. It was established in 1969. 

About the role

The Senior Research Officer is responsible for producing high quality and timely research on crime and criminal justice issues, and for evaluating complex and sensitive programs and policies. The Senior Research Officer prepares research reports, presents at seminars and conferences, and provides technical advice to Departmental staff and staff from other agencies on research methodology.
