Doing time - time for doing: Indigenous youth in the criminal justice system.

Canberra: Parliament of Australia

This report by the Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs presents findings from an inquiry into the high levels of involvement of Indigenous juveniles and young adults in the criminal justice system. The committee was focused on identifying reasons for the continuing over-representation of Indigenous young people in custody, and specifically ways of prevention and early intervention to curb this.

A major finding of the committee was the need for the Closing the gap strategy to include a national partnership agreement specifically relating to the Safe communities building block which would be inclusive of specific targets relating to justice. The committee made 40 recommendations to the Australian Government.

Evaluation of the Queensland Murri Court: final report.

Brisbane: Australian Institute of Criminology

Murri courts operates within a Magistrates Court framework but provide for involvement of key Indigenous members of the community, the offender's family, Indigenous community organisations and Community justice groups in the sentencing of Indigenous offenders. This report outlines the findings from the Australian Institute of Criminology's evaluation of the Queensland Murri court. The evaluation examined the Murri court's key objectives including:

  • reducing the overrepresentation of Indigenous offenders in correctional facilities
  • improving rates of court appearance
  • reducing recidivism
  • strengthening partnerships between courts and Indigenous communities

The evaluation found the Murri court to be largely successful in achieving these objectives, especially in strengthening partnerships. Rates of court appearance were found to have improved during the tenre of the Murri court, however there was no perceivable impact upon the rate of recidivism amongst Indigenous offenders.
