Position Details

The County Koori Court is an alternative way of administering sentences so that Court processes are more culturally accessible as well as acceptable and comprehensible to the Koori Community. The key emphasis is on creating an informal atmosphere which allows for greater participation by the Koori Community through the Aboriginal Elders and Respected Persons, the Koori Court Officer, Koori defendants and their families in the court and sentencing process. It aims to reduce perceptions of intimidation and cultural alienation experienced by Koori offenders.

The County Koori Court was established in 2009 at the Latrobe Valley Courts. The Court also operates in Melbourne, Mildura and Shepparton.  The County Court will further expand sittings of the County Koori Court across regional Victoria in line with the AJA4.

The Senior Koori Support Officer provides high level administrative support to the operation of the County Koori Court through developing and maintaining materials and data relevant to the work of the Court as well as coordinating activities at the direction of the Manager and Judge in Charge.  The role operates across Victoria and involves intrastate travel.

The role is a Designated Position in accordance with Court Services Designated Positions Policy.
