Reducing Re-Offending Framework: Setting the Scene

Research conducted over the past two decades has shown that the rehabilitation of prisoners while in prison is more effective than the use of punishment in reducing reoffending rates.

In October 2001 government funding enabled the development of a long term strategy, which included a framework to reduce reoffending in Victoria.

The resulting report, Reducing Re-offending Framework: Setting the Scene, provides an overview of a service system approach to reducing reoffending in the Victorian correctional system. The report proposes interim and future strategies for offender assessment, intervention and management.
