The Australian Crime Commission has produced "The Cost of Serious and Organised Crime in Australia" (2015) as a series of reports, some of which are public documents. The press release is at

http://www.crimecommission.gov.au/media-centre/release/australian-crime-commission-media-release/australian-crime-commission-estimates (where I am referred to as a “pre-eminent economist and criminologist”!), and you can download the public files from https://crimecommission.gov.au/publications/intelligence-products/costs-serious-and-organised-crime-australia-2013-14.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has published Research Report, Pietschmann, T. and Walker,J. (2011) Estimating illicit financial flows resulting from drug trafficking and other transnational organized crimes.

The Australian Institute of Criminology has published the Trends and Issues report, "The extent of money laundering in and through Australia in 2004", co-authored with John Stamp, (6-page Summary Report) and the 100-page Main Report on the same subject.

United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has published John's economic model of the global illicit drugs trades.

He was principal author of the International Survey on Firearms Regulation report and an invited author of sections of the Global Report on Crime and Justice for the United Nations Centre for International Crime Prevention.

The Australian Transaction Reports & Analysis Centre commissioned his "Estimates of the Extent of Money Laundering in and through Australia".  The ABC TV Program "Four Corners" gave prominence to this work in a May 2001 broadcast.

Several State correctional agencies (including Victoria, Tasmania, the A.C.T., Western Australia, New Zealand and Colorado (USA)), have published the findings of prison projection modelling in their budget papers and elsewhere, although few of these are available in web formats.

John's work was also fundamental to CORE – the Public Correctional Enterprise Victoria - being awarded a Silver Medal for Business Excellence during 2003, and the modelling of Community Corrections was awarded a prize for “Breaking new ground” at the “Probation 2004” conference organised by the U.K. National Probation Service.

The Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance acknowledges John's strategic planning processes as best practice in the Victorian public service (see their Management Reform Program Case Study).

While working with the Australian Institute of Criminology, John produced a number of Papers in the popular Trends and Issues in Criminal Justice series.  Altogether the AIC website has over 200 references to speeches, presentation and papers.  He has also presented papers at many AIC conferences including the Anti-Moneylaundering Symposium in 2002.

The Australian Journalism Education Association lists John Walker Crime Trends Analysis for the benefits of its membership, in its Police and Crime links page, and we are listed on the International Police Expertise Platform, and the Tübingen Institut für Kriminologie's website.
