Queensland Parole System Review
The Queensland Parole system is being independently reviewed to determine if this fundamental element of the corrective services system is operating effectively to support supervision of offenders on parole in Queensland.
Led by Mr Walter Sofronoff QC and Counsel Assisting Mr Michael Hodge and Mr Andrew McLean Williams, the review will examine best practice in parole systems operating in other Australasian jurisdictions, particularly with respect to the management of risk when releasing a person on parole.
A Parole Review Issues Paper has been released to assist members of the public wanting to provide comments and submissions on all aspects relating to parole. Submissions close 14 October 2016.
A report of the findings and any recommendations will be provided to the Premier and Minister for Arts, Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services and Minister for Corrective Services by 30 November 2016.
