Time Served Prison Sentences in Victoria surveys the use of sentences of imprisonment equal to the time that an offender has spent in custody on remand. It explores how Victoria’s growing remand population has caused a significant increase in the number of time served prison sentences, how many of those sentences were combined with a community correction order (CCO), and the policy implications of those types of sentences.
The Council has also prepared a two-page factsheet outlining the key findings of the report.
