Council Releases Second Report on Serious Offending by People Serving a Community Correction Order

Date of Publication
24 January 2019

The Council has released its report  on the number of people sentenced in 2017–18 for committing a serious offence while serving a community correction order. 

The report examines the:

  • rate at which community correction orders are contravened by serious offending
  • types of serious offences committed
  • gender and age of people who committed the serious offences
  • percentage of people who were on a community correction order combined with imprisonment
  • time from the start of the community correction order to the commission of the first serious offence.

This is the Council’s second report to fulfil a requirement under the Corrections Act 1986 (Vic) to report annually on convictions for serious offences committed by people on community correction orders. 

The report’s findings for 2017–18 are remarkably consistent with findings for 2016–17.

The Council has also made available a complete list of serious offences current between 16 January 2012 and 30 June 2018.
