In June 2019, the Premier of New South Wales made reducing reoffending one of her top priorities.
The Premier advised that the target for this priority is to reduce adult reoffending following release from prison by 5 per cent by 2023. Some new counting rules were agreed to ensure we focus on those who commit more serious offences including personal, property and serious drug matters.
A closely related target also set by the Premier is to reduce domestic violence reoffending by offenders leaving prison, by 25 per cent by 2023.
