The Aboriginal Legal Service (ALS) is working with an advanced technology development unit from the University of Technology Sydney to develop a user-friendly digital platform to improve its Custody Notification System (CNS).

The CNS notifies the ALS, or equivalent service, whenever an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person is taken into custody, so it can provide assistance, legal support and help safeguard their well-being.

The ALS say this project has the potential to strengthen their advocacy, policy and law reform work.
