ACTCOSS's focus is on reducing the number of people incarcerated and improving community safety. We promote effective integration and support for people involved in the criminal justice system: from arrest, to court, to sentencing, community orders or incarceration and release into the community.
ACTCOSS advocates for a justice reinvestment approach which seeks to address the underlying social determinants of crime, such as:
- Health and mental health issues
- Lack of education and employment opportunities
- Alcohol and other drug misuse
