Submission: Inquiry into Sentencing in the ACT

Publication date: 
October 2013

ACTCOSS welcomes the opportunity to provide comment on the topics listed in the Terms of Reference for the Inquiry into Sentencing in the ACT.

ACTCOSS’ main interest is that judicial officers in the ACT have the right range of sentencing options available so that the social determinants of crime are addressed, offenders are given the opportunity to rehabilitate, and the risks of reoffending are reduced whilst community safety is maximised.
