Corrections Research Evaluation, & Statistics (CRES) formally the Research and Statistics Division was established in July 1970.
Since this time it has been continuously responsible for undertaking research, evaluation and statistics for Corrective Services NSW and other government and external agencies. This has included descriptive and evaluative studies into correctional programs which have informed correctional practices and policies.
These publications represent the longstanding commitment by CRES to produce professional correctional research, evaluation and statistics that drive evidence based practice.
