WHY CRIME?
Unresolved crimes may highlight important social justice issues. Understanding the things that go wrong can point to changes that we as a society should consider.  Forensic science is a field of growing interest.  Greater awareness may even prevent or solve crimes. Victoria Police asks members of the public to come forward if they have any information that may assist. Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000

The guide was great: knowledgeable yet engaging. I have been living in the city for many years but didn’t know it had so many layers.
