Crime inquiry to travel across Queensland

CRIMES of domestic and sexual violence will be in sharp focus as an inquiry into Queensland crime prepares to travel throughout the state.

The Legal Affairs Committee will hold public and private hearings "in rural and regional areas" although it will be up to committee members to hammer out a schedule.

It will ask Queenslanders what crime matters worry them and how they can be prevented.

The inquiry will specifically consider those affectged by sexual or domestic violence and how they interact with authorities.

The social or financial reasons for crime, the use of prevention strategies including early intervention will also be examined.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said legal experts had discussed the inquiry, offering guidance on where the inquiry should be looking.

The committee is to complete its report by October 31.
