Migrant Guide to Australian law
Monday, 4th August 2003 at 1:08 pm

A new Internet initiative will help migrants understand Australian law and the role of police.

The guide to help newly arrived migrants understand their rights and responsibilities under Australian law is available on the Internet in eight languages.

A Guide to the Role of Police in Australia was developed by the Australasian Police Multicultural Advisory Bureau, with funding assistance from the Commonwealth Government’s Living in Harmony initiative.

Produced in English, Arabic, Afghani (Dari), Bosnian, Chinese (Mandarin), Persian (Farsi), Somali and Vietnamese the guide is now available in PDF form from the Australasian Police Multicultural Advisory Bureau web site in all eight languages.

The Federal Government describes the guide was an excellent example of the commitment of Australia’s State and Territory police forces to the delivery of culturally appropriate, customer oriented services to all Australians.

It says it help engender confidence in all Australians particularly those recently arrived of the need to work with the police and that it is vital that new migrants and refugees are provided with information on Australia’s policing processes and fundamental legal concepts, as they often arrive from countries with vastly different legal systems and standards.

The web site address is at www.apmab.gov.au/pubs/PoliceGuide.html .
