This book is a revised version of the WA 1994 Report on implementation of the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. It examines Aboriginal offending and victimisation patterns and draws attention to the very high-recorded crime rates, whether involving other Aborigines or n-Aborigines. Particularly striking are the patterns revealed of Aboriginal violence within the family, against both women and children. It then examines police activity, highlighting such matters such as skewed arrest rates, lesser use of bail and greater use of lock-up custody.
