The post-release experience of prisoners in Queensland

4 Dec 2006
Description

Unless ways can be found to prevent reoffending by released prisoners, they will continue to be highly likely to return to prison at a high cost to the community. This study examined pre-release expectations and post-release experiences of prisoners in Queensland to help identify the factors likely to lead to reincarceration. Of particular note were high rates of drug use, particularly amphetamines and cannabis. The report notes the importance of throughcare - programs begun in prison and continued after release - to support ex-prisoners against reoffending.
