Incarceration costs money, fragments families and makes it harder than ever for those who are locked up to be active, cohesive members of our community when they return. There has to be a better way.
In partnership with the Wheeler Centre and Smart Justice, we hosted a public event to explore how we can cut crime, reduce prison spending and strengthen communities.
Our panel, including former Attorney-General Rob Hulls, former Commissioner Queensland Corrections Marlene Morison and Magistrate Pauline Spencer, took an approach that’s both pragmatic and compassionate, looking for options that go beyond prison – and get better results.
The event was broadcasted on Radio National’s Law Report and can be listened to here.
Thursday 11th September at the Wheeler Centre
Time: 6.15pm – 7.15pm
