In 2001, ACSO brought together around 100 industry stakeholders to discuss post-release support services. The event proved an overwhelming success, and from this the idea for a bi-annual conference was born.
In 2003, ACSO launched its first Forensic Disability Conference hosted in Melbourne. This provided a more formal opportunity for national and international stakeholders, industry leaders and policy makers to discuss important issues within the criminal justice and social service sectors.
Renamed the International Criminal Justice Conference in 2009, ACSO is proud to be hosting the 10th Anniversary of this event in November 2022.
