Evaluation of the Redevelopment of Community Correctional Services – Final Report
In 2001, the Victorian correctional system received funding of $334.5 million to undertake a major reform strategy. The Corrections Long Term Management Strategy (CLTMS) arose from an increase in the Victorian prison population and a need to manage demand for prison beds by focusing on diversion and rehabilitation.
One of the most significant CLTMS initiatives was the four-year (2001–2005) Redevelopment of Community Correctional Services (CCS). The redevelopment aimed at diverting people from entering custody and preventing prisoners from returning to custody. A range of infrastructure and service enhancements were undertaken to strengthen the capacity of CCS to effectively manage offenders in the community.
This final evaluation report of the redevelopment of Community Correctional Services provides the full details.
