Description

A community correction order (CCO) is a sentence imposed by a court that allows offenders to complete their sentences in a community setting. Offenders on CCOs may have to comply with specific conditions imposed by the courts, such as mandatory drug or alcohol treatment, and significant restrictions such as curfews and judicial monitoring. In this audit, we examined how effectively Corrections Victoria (CV) manages CCOs.

We also looked at:

  • the Department of Health and Human Services to assess how well it coordinates court-ordered programs with CV
  • Victoria Police, to examine how well it exchanges information with CV about offenders on CCOs.

Twelve recommendations are made in this report for CV, and one each for Victoria Police and the Department of Health and Human Services.
