Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

This report outlines offending and justice issues in Western Australia (WA), and recommends a policy shift to 'justice reinvestment', an approach that aims to address the risk factors of crime, crime prevention, and adequate rehabilitation of offenders. This report provides details on:

  • current levels of offending in WA and the economic costs associated with these levels
  • the health and social determinants of offending
  • the role of the community sector
  • barriers to the adoption of a 'justice reinvestment' approach in WA
  • the 'delivering community services in partnership' policy in WA
  • recommendations.
