Post Sentence Authority officially launched

A new statutory authority charged with overseeing many of Victoria’s most serious criminals has officially started work. The Post-Sentence Authority came into effect on 28 February 2018, as the Victorian Government continues to implement all 35 recommendations from the Harper Review into the management of serious sex offenders.

Victorian Budget outcomes 2017-18

The outcome includes a record $308 million investment ($256 million over four years in output and $52 million TEI in asset) in the post-sentence supervision and detention scheme.  This builds upon the $84 million in last year's budget to commence implementation of the Harper reforms. The expanded post-sentence scheme will draw in serious violent offenders, in addition to serious sex offenders, and will include both post-sentence supervision and detention options. The budget allocation provides additional funding for the  20-bed secure facility funded in 2016-17, to be built next to Hopkins Correctional Centre, as well as new funding for a 10-bed post sentence detention facility to be built within an existing facility
