Australian Vehicle Crime Conference 2017 - Outcomes Summary

The following notes summarise the program content and outcomes of the Australian Vehicle Crime Conference (AVCC) hosted by the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council in conjunction with Victoria Police and the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators in Melbourne on 4-5 April 2017. The AVCC was proudly sponsored by RACV. The conference brought together more than 240 representatives from policing and law enforcement, crime prevention, academia, general insurance, motor trades, local government and community sectors to review current national and local strategic and operational responses to vehicle crime.

The conference program was divided into three distinct themes of diverting young offenders, disrupting the vehicle laundering and separated parts markets and building stakeholder capacity/ promoting innovation. The full program and most speakers’ presentations can be viewed or downloaded at*

Select presentations on the key themes and issues were complemented with expert panel sessions in which conference participants were able to pose questions to one or all of the sessional presenters.

The key presentation points are summarised below together with a brief assessment from the NMVTRC about what it sees as the implications for its forward work program or the work of others.

*The presentations by Messrs Shelton (The Future of Vehicle Identity) and Bielecke (Insurance Industry Response to Motor Fraud) have not been reproduced at their request.
