Where we are up to 

Project and Research Officers have been engaged to progress this work. Canadian, New Zealand and Murri models are being investigated as part of the research element.

Background

This project will look at trialing 'Aboriginal Community Justice Reports', modelled on Canada’s Gladue reports to provide information to judicial officers about an Aboriginal person’s life experience and history that impacts their offending; and to identify more suitable sentencing arrangements to address these underlying factors.
