Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council Tasmania (ATDC) information session: vulnerable people and bail

 

Overview

This sessions is presented by Isabelle Bartkowiak-Theron from the Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies. The session is titled The problem with vulnerable people and bail: limits to diversionary options for young people. Academics, policy makers, police and justice professionals agree that efforts should be made to reduce the over-representation of vulnerable people, such as Indigenous Australians, young people and people living with a mental illness, in the criminal justice system. Outside localised initiatives such as therapeutic jurisprudence, bail remains the most current practice that supposedly diverts vulnerable people from incarceration and reoffending. However, scientific knowledge about the management of vulnerable offenders on bail is sketchy. This session will highlight the work that remains to be done to properly 'picture' good bail practices in Australia, and the data recently collected in researching the issue.
