This snapshot provides an overview of Indigenous peoples' experiences of law and justice as reported in the 2002 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS), as well as data from other relevant ABS collections. The paper is divided into three sections. The first deals with exposure to violence, including physical and threatened violence. The second section deals with community or neighbourhood problems, and the third section discusses involvement in the criminal justice system, including arrest and incarceration.
