The Queensland Government has asked the QPC to conduct an inquiry into how resources and policies can be best used to reduce imprisonment and recidivism and improve outcomes for the community.
The Commission has released an Issues paper for this inquiry, and is now running a series of public forums to seek your views and evidence on the issues raised.
The inquiry will examine:
- trends in imprisonment and recidivism rates and the causal factors behind those trends, including those for young people, women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- the benefits and costs of imprisonment
- options to reduce imprisonment and recidivism and improve community outcomes.
Register your attendance at this public forum here.
Forums will be held in Townsville Cairns, Rockhampton and Brisbane throughout October 2018. See all dates and locations here.
