The Prevention and Education team undertakes research and investigations that focus on systemic misconduct or maladministration in the NSW Police Force and NSW Crime Commission. This includes conduct or practices which might be unlawful or unreasonable.

The work of the Prevention and Education team aims to assist the state’s law enforcement agencies to improve the way they identify, prevent and minimise of misconduct, unlawful actions and unreasonable practices. The team considers practices and processes, compliance with legislation and policies, the clarity of policies and instructions given to officers, the level of supervision officers receive and officer training and education. 

The Prevention and Education team also conduct legislative reviews under various legislation that requires the Commission to keep under scrutiny the use of particular powers conferred on police. 

The Commission’s Community Engagement function sits within the Prevention and Education team.
