Crime and Violence - Justin Healey
Call Number: 364.1 CRI
ISBN: 978192084705
Publication Date: 2015
The prevalence of violent crime - which includes homicide, assault, sexual assault, robbery and kidnapping - can be difficult to measure, with the facts often obscured by fear. If regular media reports are to be believed, Australia is constantly in the midst of a violent crime wave; is this actually the case? Why are 18-24 year olds most at risk of being victims and perpetrators of violent crime? What are the effects of violence on victims? Alcohol-related violence is a complex issue explored in this book - do greater alcohol restrictions and the introduction of 'one-punch' laws and mandatory sentencing have an impact on violent street assaults?



Remember Amlib?!

Well Amlib is no more in the Loxton High School Library!

So how will you locate the resources you need? How can you borrow your English novel?

AccessIt is the answer!

We have recently upgraded our Library Management System from Amlib to AccessIt.

The Library staff have undertaken some training and are learning our way around the new program!

We love that the OPAC is so visual and now when you log on to the curriculum network you will find the above icon which will open AccessIt and allow you to search and even extend your own overdues!
